Derreck Lee Hits #300

Wednesday, June 9, 2010 marks the day that Derrek Lee hits his 300th Homerun and his 7th of the 2010 season.  He is tied for 125th on the all-time homers list and now one behind Rogers Hornsby.  However, he is 20th on the list of active players.  He is six away from catching Pudge Rodriguez on the active list and less than 20 from catching Berkman, Glaus and Carlos Lee.  Pretty good company. Lee has had a slow start but could easily finish the season in the top 100 of MLB sluggers.  Congrats on this great milestone.
