Out of Context statement of the Day

"If it's a deal I feel is fair for me, I would sign it. It's still a business. I always look at it as if there is a deal that makes me happy now, why not sign it? I don't think $2-3 million a year more is going to change my life," he said.

That may sound flippant, to dismiss 2-3 million dollars like it was nothing, which would ordinarily make me angry, especially from a baseball player. But this is Derek Lee, one of the good guys. The way he means it is, as opposed to most players, is that he won't be trying to squeeze every last drop out of a team. If he's happy, why not sign?
