The Transaction Oracle weighs in.
Szymborski likes the Cat signing, suggests that the Carlos Lee contract makes Soriano look like a steal.
I'm interested in seeing whether Houston fans grow as irritated with Lee for being slow, and lazy in the outfield, as quickly as Rangers fans did.
Szymborski, for what it is worth, says that Lee is a better player than Cat. I'm not convinced that's the case...however, I will say that I think a platoon of Cat with, say, Jason Botts results in a better player than Carlos Lee.
