Rumor: Lee to Angels

I am surprise no one has posted this trade rumor yet, but think it definitely warrants discussion.


According to Chicago Tribune sources, the Cubs and Angels are involved in talks surrounding trading our beloved first baseman Derrek Lee to the Angels to replace their recently injured first baseman Kendry Morales.

Is this a good idea now at this point in the season given how poorly we have played?

What kind of return could we expect or who should we target?

Who replaces Derrek at first if he is dealt? Nady?

I have also read elsewhere that the Angels have been in contact with the White Sox about trading for Paul Konerko as well.  Should we try and beat Kenny Williams to the punch here?
