Travis Lee - Yankee 

It looks like I'm finally going to get my wish and Travis Lee is going to be a Yankee. Is this move going to push the Yankees over the top? Probably not, but you never do know when you're in the same division as the Red Sox. If you look back at the archives of Baseball Musings and Bronx Banter you'll see my pleading for Travis Lee (or Eric Karros) to back up Giambi at 1B. And we ended up with Tony Clark. But like Scott says, Tony sure is tall.

Lee's OPS+ puts him right around average for a hitter, give or take (2001:101, 2002:98, 2003:111), and his best season was definately last year. Hopefully he'll make the team instead of Clark.

- Addendum -
Here's the reason why the Yankees didn't sign Travis Lee sooner:
