Lee and Choi Again

There is an interesting comparison to be tracked this year between Derreck Lee and Hee Sop Choi. Here's where they are thus far:

Player     POS G AB R H 2B3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP  SLG  AVG   

H Choi FLA 1B 18 51 9 15 0 0 6 10 33 9 13 1 0 .410 .647 .294
D Lee CHC 1B 19 66 11 16 7 0 2 11 29 9 18 2 1 .342 .439 .242


Lee is making $4.5M this season while Choi makes around $300K. Of course, one could argue that Choi needed a change of scenery and would not have performed like this in a Cubs uniform but I think it's clear that Dusty Baker and the Cubs did not handle him properly last year. It would be nice to have another left-handed bat in the lineup as well. Lee has been a positive contributor for the Cubs this year, especially with his defense and I think he'll pick it up with the bat. However, Dusty is batting him in the 6th hole when he should be hitting 2nd with Patterson 6th. While we're at it Barrett should hit 7th and Gonzales 8th.
