Derrek Lee traded to Atlanta

From Len & Bob's Twitter:

"It's official. The Cubs acquired minor leaguer RHPs Robinson Lopez,Tyrelle Harris & LHP Jeffrey Lorick from Braves for Derrek Lee & cash."

Unlike the Lilly trade, this trade I can understand. Lee was in the last season of his contract, and it was unlikely the Cubs would try to re-sign him. Best thing to do would be to try and get some prospects while he's with the team rather than let his contract expire and get bupkus.

Still, I hate to see Lee go.
