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.
Actually, the best rookie hitter in the AL is Joe Mauer. With the knee issues last year, he actually spent enough time on the DL (and not enough time on the active roster) to stay a rookie another year.
