Derrek Lee's out for two months with a broken wrist. Maybe three. And wrist injuries are notoriously fickle. Lee might not be right again until 2007. I suppose we should assume the Cubs are now essentially out of the postseason derby (if they weren't already). But you know, sometimes they'll fool you.
