Derrek Lee - Good First Baseman or Myth

Driving home tonight I heard the hosts on WSCR proudly proclaiming how having Derrek Lee back will be of great help as he will save lots of A Ram errors. And, initially, I said, hey that's right. And then I got home and look at the statistics. Hmmmm. Last season, with Lee out for much of the season and the Cubs having to play "substandard" defensive players at first, A Ram had a BETTER FP with fewer errors. Hmmmm.

Sounds like the idea that Lee saves lots of A Ram errors may be a myth.
