Should Cubs Resign Derrek Lee?

By bullpenbrian at 07.29.2010 Leave a comment.

You can’t be upset with D-Lee’s decision to revoke a trade to Anaheim.
As a 10-5 player, he’s earned the right to do so.

I am surprised, however, Lee’s decided to go down with the sinking ship
on the North Side vs. playing for a contender.

Of course, it would’ve been nice to get a little something in return for him,
but having Lee around isn’t all that discouraging, either.

Now the question looms as to what to do about Lee this offseason?
The two-time All Star turns 35 in two months, he’s scuffling offensively
and presumably looking to sign his last professional contract.

But what Lee lacks in production he makes up for in character.
And the Cubs, no doubt, need that leadership with a multitude
of promising prospects on the horizon
.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of Lee returning
for another two years. Then again, maybe I’m just thinking with
my heart and not my head?
