Not that Ned was interested in Carlos Lee in the first place. Shockingly, Keith Law finds something negative to say about this deal as well:
The primary problem with his $100 million deal with the Astros is that Lee, 30, doesn't profile as the type of hitter who'll age well into his 30s.
Have any of this off-season's deals gone over well with the press? I guess sportswriters eking out a living find it hard to justify guys half their age signing nine-figure deals.
