Any chance we could trade Derrek Lee for some bullpen help and and some prospects? Maybe we could get Feliciano and another, along with some prospects or cash considerations for Lee. I realize Lee has been a great player for the Cubs, but if you look at his stats, he's definitely passed his prime. 2005 was his last great season, and though I think he's still capable, a trade to a big market team like the Mets could really free up some salary room for the Cubs to make a big trade at the deadline. Lee is by far a superior defensive player when compared to Hoffpauir, but when you look at their stats this year, Lee has 33 more ABs, a lower average by almost a 100pts, 11 more strikeouts, 2 more homeruns and they have the same number of RBIs. Thoughts?
