Small Sample Size All-Star Hak Ju Lee


As long as people are getting in a huff about Sam Fuld based on a small sample size, how about the numbers Hak Ju Lee has put up in high A ball for Tampa Bay?  

 .425 BA, .521 OBP, 1.259 OPS, 31 Total Bases in 50 Plate Appearances 

Obviously, like Fuld, these numbers will come down, but I think Cub fans will rue the day Hak Ju Lee was included in a trade for a pitcher in his prime when the Cubs are two to three years from being a good team.  Yes, because the division sucks there's a chance they could contend this year, but that is no way to build a team.  You build a team by making it as strong as it can be for as long as it can be and hopefully, you get a few good young players from your organization that don't cost you a fortune.  

Dollar per win, Garza will not be worth the players given up plus the money paid him.  And even if he goes 18-0 the rest of the way, it probably won't matter.  With 40% of the starters on the DL and Dempster in free fall, I don't see the Cubs contending even in this rotten division.  

Give me your young, strong and cheap!  Give me a future to look forward to!  As Jerry Rubin said - "Don't trust anyone over 30."
