    Carlos Lee

    Does anybody out their think this guy would be worth a flyer? I think this guy could put up Greg Vaughn like numbers for a year and could give something like BA .275 HR 35 RBIS 110 especially in GABP and hitting fourth behind Votto. You look at the likes of the LF's we have had over the years Gomes, Dunn, Vaughn, I think you could do no worse with Carlos Lee for a year in left. I think he is adequate enough in left with his glove because he will post good enough numbers with his bat, maybe be a big enough difference that could mean ten more wins combined with our much improved rotation and revamped bullpen, Madsen will be the signing of the offseason. I really think he would be a good fit and with him batting behind Votto could be huge for not only votto but Jay Bruce that what he lacks on defense he will make up for with the protection he give this line up and the presence he would be in the club house. I have never heard anything negative about the guy and I hear Houston would eat most of his salary. So now the only question is what would it take to get him? I would not want to give up anything involving Heisey though! Maybe something like a Danny Dorn, Carlos Fisher, and a Kyle Lotzkar.

    You could probably forget about Lee. In order for Houston to pay most of his 18.5MM salary for 2012, you'd basically be selling prospects. The better the prospect, the more money you receive in return. I honestly don't think we have the prospects to send to Houston for 1 year of Lee and he'd be affordable to the Reds.

    Say Houston pays half and Bob raises payroll to allow Lee do we have players that could get him and not hurt us?

    Overweight and aging. I like where we are. Young with tons of chemistry and in need of better pitching. How many games did we lose last year by 1 run? It was a league high....

    Lee has not been a great offensive player for the last couple of years, and I think we can agree that he's going to give up quite a few runs playing the OF. I'm not in love with Heisey as a starter, but I think that he should be able to post a .725-.750 OPS with relative ease. Go look at the numbers and you'll see that's pretty close to what Lee has done the last two years. He's not worth the players and/or money that the Reds would have to commit. He'd be a very marginal upgrade at best.
