Astros Trade Carlos Lee to the Marlins

Carlos Lee is now a Miami Marlin

He's use to wearing ugly uniforms so Carlos Lee should fit in comfortably in Miami.

I remember in one of his first at bats as an Astros, Lance Berkman was on first and Carlos Lee hit a double and Lance advanced to third base.   Carlos Lee started looking at Berkman like "You didn't score on that?"  and Berkman started laughing.  I've been a big fan of him ever since and he looks like a good teammate.

Carlos Lee was traded for a couple of Marlin prospects; third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitcher Rob Rasmussen.  Don't know anything about either guy except they both have great baseball last names.

El Caballo has left Minute Maid Park.  I hope he wins with the Marlins. 

And if you didn't catch it yesterday.  Here's a Baseball Card Theater dedicated to TRADED cards.

Happy 4th of July.
