8/18 Why D-Lee said "yes"

Derrek Lee rejected a potential trade to the Angels in late July but said yes to being traded to the Braves. Why?

“It just felt right,” Lee said. “The main thing is we have six weeks to go and Atlanta is in first place and they’re playing great baseball. I understand what Jim’s trying to do here so it just felt right. The chance to go to the postseason, it’s hard to pass up. They have a great organization and I’ve always respected Bobby [Cox]. The timing, it just didn’t seem right then. The Angels were close but not right there. Moving your family for that period of time — this time, it seemed right.”
