Happy Black Friday, Derrek Lee Could Accept Pirates Arb Offer

.

As expected, the Pittsburgh Pirates offered arbitration to Derrek Lee who is a free agent.

I never wanted to read anything like this

The unexpected part was the tweet from Buster that said there isn’t a gentlemans agreement to decline, in other words, there might be a possibility that Lee accepts.

Paying over $8.5 million for a 37-year old first baseman isn’t what we envision when think of the Buccos in 2012. It’s not even close. If there is a God watching above, Lee will decline and the Pirates will get a first round compensation pick in the 2012 draft.

Derrek Lee had a great run in Pittsburgh, let's leave it at just that.

 

 

See ya, Chariman. (Crosses fingers)
