Come To Think of It: An Open Letter of Apology to Derrek Lee

July 3, 2009 by  

Dear Derrek Lee,

Many times on this very site I have either called for you to be traded or have expressed frustration with both your inability to hit for power as well as your seemingly nonchalant attitude.

I have said that you were indifferent; that you were sleeping through at-bats that never even came close to the numbers you displayed in 2005, when you hit .335, with 46 homers and 107 RBI.

True, you still aren't likely to ever approach those numbers again, which raises suspicions that you were on PEDs that year.

Look, such obvious one season anomalies still perplex me. I don't take the steroid comment back at all.

But in thinking that you were washed up? OK, I admit, I was wrong.
