BASEBALL: The End of an Unsuccessful Career

David Pinto offers a damning assessment of Travis Lee's career as it appears to have ended with his release by the woebegotten Nationals:

He didn't get on base, he didn't hit for power, all he could do was pick up throws at first base. And yet he parlayed that into a nine year career and made about $11 million dollars. Lee always struck me as someone who possessed talent for the game but not a passion for the game. When Leo Durocher said nice guys finish last, he was talking about Travis.
