The only time you ever hear about former MLB slugger Carlos Lee these days is when some blogger whine how bad the prospects their team traded for him have blown or when some bozo on the Twitters needs someone famous to make a fat joke.
“Yo mama so fat, she stuck out at the plate almost as much as Carlos Lee!”
“How do you get Carlos Lee to steal home?
“Grease her hips, and throw in a Twinkie.”
Fat jokes or not, major league baseball is the only job in America where a man of Lee’s rotund stature could bank enough paper to afford a 5 bed, 9 bath house in Texas for which the LAT’s sports celeb realtor gawd Neal Leitereg flagged that Lee recently put on the market for $1,900,000.
That complex’s 1.11 acre had to be handy to host a rodeo or two for him to ditch out on spring training for.
