The Marlins and Astros are deep into talks about a deal that would send Carlos Lee to Miami, ESPN.com's Buster Olney reports (on Twitter). Lee, who can block trades to 14 teams, including the Dodgers, has indicated a willingness to play in Miami, according to Olney.

Why do the Marlins want Carlos Lee? Consider this: Miami 1Bmen have lowest OPS among 30 teams by huge margin.

Ozzie and Carlos Lee again?
After he threw him under the bus in Chicago I thought this bridge was burnt.

Wasn't Matt Dominguez their can't miss 3B of the future? With Hanley and Reyes on the left side their isn't much use for him. Astros hope he can turn it around and save some money.

Lee was pulled from the Pirates game I was watching earlier, makes sense now

guess the Marilins werent one of the 14 teams he could block trades to. We'll see if he comes out and bashes the Astro's for being dealt since it doesnt appear he had to sign off on the deal

I think they actually were...but I read before this became official that he liked the idea of playing for Miami..

Lee was pulled from the Pirates game I was watching earlier, makes sense nowAccording to Jonathan Mayo he is the #74th best prospect in all of baseball. #2 in their system. He is a former 1st round pick, 2007 pick 12. Lot of potential traded for a rental.

Not any more.. He is pretty much not going to hit. All glove 3B is not a horrible piece, but he most likely not even make the Atrsos top 5 or maybe even 10.

yea reading now that he signed off on the deal and had his locker cleaned out before todays game was over.

.743 and .643 OPS in the PCL over the last couple of years. And he didn't exactly tear up the lower minors. Sounds pretty mediocre to me.

I was actually very happy we didn't get him.

If he can turn it around at the plate, the Astros might have something.

My thoughts exactly...

I'm glad Florida is ending up the mess I expected it to be. This is a desperate move on their end BECAUSE of the history.

Lee+Hanley+Stanton will be a very good middle part of the order, the NL East race is going to be one of the best.

Hoping we can pull another Dan Uggla or Michael Bourn type trade here and get him without giving up our top 3 prospects. I can see Texas overpaying you for him though as they're prob all in this year

he has a GG defense but no bat at all. The kid is still young but far from anything special. If his bat comes around( still young) he could become solid. He was compared to a scott rolen when drafted.

Dominguez is only 22 and has plenty of time to grow as a hitter. Last year he broke his wrist which hurt his development. No one should be writing this kid off.

Meh...Dominguez stock was really falling and the other guy is nothing to write home about.

It Was A Good Deal For Hou. Lee Is A 36 YR Old Average Rental For A Guy That Has Upside, In Dominguez

Texas doesn't have a state income tax either.

... which means that at least Lee isn't going to take an effective pay cut to move from Texas to Florida, unlike the potential trade to CA, the state with supposedly the highest state income tax in the country.

I never gave it any thought, but now that I do, I can't blame a guy for not wanting to move from a no-(income) tax state to a high tax state in a trade.

He has a .647 OPS in the PCL right now. They got nothing close to a haul.

I felt like the Astros could have gotten more, or at least more salary taken.

Why? Lee isn't having a good season and is on pace to post his third straight sub-.800 OPS. Plus Lee had to agree to it.

At least Lee will be WAY better Sanchez, who has been horrendous this year.
