Lee is a great addition to the Braves, he does everything on the field and he's a great teammate. He'll add a lot to this Braves squad as they try to make a push for the playoffs.

I've always been a fan of Derek Lee, he's such a professional. The Cubs fan will definitely miss him in different ways.

Great acquisition for the Braves. Lee is a good offensive and a great defensive first baseman and will certainly help Atlanta on their run to the playoffs.

What is interesting here is almost the signal for the end of the era for the Cubs. Lee is gone. Pinella is leaving at the end of the season. I will be shocked if Zambrano is at Wrigley next season. They have some young talent coming up; maybe its time guys like Ramirez and Soriano get moved. Be an interesting off-season in Chicago.
