If he wants $75 mill over 5 years, he'll have to enjoy playing for the Yankees. He's having a great year, but last year he was 811 OPS. For his career he is 833 OPS. For $15 million a year I'm pretty sure Jim Hendry can do better than that.
CHICAGO (AP) -
Brewers leftfielder Carlos Lee is interested in
returning to Chicago.
Should he make it to free agency, Lee confirms he expressed
interest in playing for the Cubs next year.
Lee kept his home in Chicago after he was traded from the White
Sox to the Brewers after the 2004 season.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Lee is looking for a five-year
deal for around 75 (M) million, which Lee denies.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin says Derrek Lee didn't even
get that, referring to the five-year, 65 (M) million dollar
extension the Cubs gave him last year.
Melvin says don't assume they'd be interested in trading Lee.
