The Baltimore Orioles just signed Derrick Lee to a one year deal probably around 8MM. After pulling such a lopsided deal for JJ Hardy and adding Mark Reynolds, the Orioles have successfully built a solid defensive infield. Unfortunately for Baltimore, that will not be enough to compete in that stacked division. But if those players were put in the Bucs infield, I feel it would have been a definite improvement for us in the NL Central. I can't understand why Neil Huntington didn't try harder for Lee and Hardy? The Orioles got Hardy for fringe relievers in Brett Jacobson and Jim Hoey. Now they also add Lee for presumably 8MM for a year, while we will be paying 5MM for one year of Lyle Overbay! Lee is just as good defensively and at least provides a right-handed power threat in our lineup. Overbay will probably just give us another Garrett Jones with a little better .OBP I don't mind the Correria and Diaz signings, but not improving the 2011 infield is looking like a major failure in Neil Huntington's lap. I am just steaming because I really would have loved to see one season of Alvarez at 3B, Hardy at SS, Walker at 2B, and Lee at 1B, with Snyder catching. Our fourth and fifth starter type stuff pitchers definitely would love to have an infield like that! O WELL! I'm interested hear everyone Else's thoughts. Sorry just felt like ranting on some last 2010 frustration. Wish everyone a Happy New Year! We all can hope for any improvement in 2011.
