Pirates trade for Derrek Lee

Per everybody on twitter, the Pirates have traded for Derrek Lee from the Orioles, giving up Aaron Baker, who currently is the firstbaseman in Bradenton. If you're like me, you've never heard the name Aaron Baker before tonight, so needless to say this is a great deal for the Pirates. It also hopefully means the end of the Lyle Overbay era in Pittsburgh.

Lee's numbers this year: 85 GP, 12 HR, 41 RBI, 25 BB, 83 K, 2 SB, 1 CS, .246/.302/.404
Overbay's for reference: 102 GP, 7 HR, 35 RBI, 36 BB, 74 K, 1 SB, 1 CS, .227/.301/.342

Let's Go Bucs.
