8/18 Think D-Lee will be missed?

Here’s what teammate Ryan Dempster had to say about Derrek Lee:

“The way I look at it,” Dempster said, “is if I brought my son to the ballpark and I wanted him to look on the field and watch a guy play, I’d tell him to pay attention to Derrek Lee. I’ve been real lucky to be his teammate for 11 1/2 years and he does everything you can ask out of a teammate. He’s prepared every day and a tremendous leader. Aside from what he does on the field, he’s a better human being than he is a baseball player. The Atlanta Braves are lucky to get a guy like that and it’s unfortunate we have to lose a guy like that.”
