Carlos Lee rejects a 4-year/$48 million offer from the Brewers.
With the presence of Bill Hall, Corey Hart, Gabe Gross, and Nelson Cruz on the roster, this is very welcome news indeed. The Brewers can move Lee, get younger players to shore up the bullpen and get some help for the future at catcher (Damian Miller is getting old for that position).
Most importantly, the Brewers can give the players who will be important for success over the next four of five years extensions (Bill Hall, Doug Davis, Chris Capuano).
This is a blessing, not the curse of the Brewers having to fire-sale people as they have in the past.
