Carlos Lee to the Rangers for Mench, Nix, and Francisco Cordero, plus a low-A pitcher.
I like this deal. The steal of this deal looks to be Laynce Nix, whose numbers in 2003-2004 look very similar to Bill Hall's.
Mench is not bad, either. He's looking like a solid OF, and could be flipped for something else by Monday's trade deadline.
Cordero bolsters the bullpen.
Not a bad return for two months of Carlos Lee.
