Originally posted by estragandIt's Travis Lee who went to the Yankees, right? Pirates are expected to announce Mondesi's signing this week. Along with the return of "Mr. Sausage" Randal Simon. I'd say the over/under on a Pittsbrugh sportswriter penning a Mondesi/Clemente comparison column is 2 weeks.
Travis Lee is still a Devil Ray. The Yanks signed Tony Clark to back-up Giambi
Travis Lee was non-tendered by the Devil Rays, and has been on the verge of signing with the Yankees for a week and a half.
IIRC, his very first major league hit was a triple. Looking back, that was a pretty good omen. I liked watching him play; he was a true pro. Looking forward to seeing Ken Griffey III play in the majors one day.
