Trade Flash



Carlos Lee is now a Marlin.  Today, the Marlins traded Matt Dominguez and Rob Rasmussen for Houston Astro Carlos Lee. Lee, a .279 hitter this season, can play outfield and first base.  Odds are, Gaby Sanchez will be sent down to make room for the consistent bat of Lee.  Nestled in the top six of the order, Lee will provide intentional walk protection for Giancarlo Stanton, as well as  the possibility of being a good 3-hole hitter.
