Jim C (Tinley Park): March 2009 Archives

Since when did Derrek Lee become so lame?
Yes, the Cub's second-best first baseman was "Offended" that team USA officials asked him to play Sunday Night vs Japan in the WBC semi-final game. Lee said "That he was out with a quad injury and felt disrespected." First of all, Lee's injury was day to day.
The ground out/double play hitting machine even said mid last week "That if this was April he would be playing." Secondly, he should have taken it as a compliment that he was aked to play.

As far as I am concerned he is not good anymore, every first baseman in the division is better than him with the exception LaRoche from Pittsburgh. Hell, he is not even the best first baseman on the Cubs.

Derrek, if you are reading this, you are two years removed from your wrist injury, your daughter is well stop bitching about the little things and try not to hit into so many DP's this year. WORD!
