Hes been very solid this year - 6 wins, 40k, 3.32 era, 1.16 whip. I know he has potential, but will he keep it up, or blow up in the second half like last year?

I share your concern as a Lee owner the past two years.

I think the difference this year is that he is the #4 starter behind CC, Milwood and Westbrook. THis means that he is going up against #4 starters instead of #2's and 3's like last year.

Another point that works in his favor is that the Indians have an improved offense (has not really shown yet but it will) and a vastly improved bullpen. That means he can go 6 or so innings and can get the win.

Seems like he is pitching rather than throwing this year. He is rounding into a very fine pitcher and realizing his potential. Maybe this year he won't be snubbed from the ASG. :-)

I like what I've seen out of Lee this year. I think he'll continue to develop - his ERA and WHIP might creep up a little in the 2nd half, but I see him remaining productive.

Cleveland's bullpen is much better this year.

I've drafted and kept him for the last 2 seasons.

I'm supersticiuos (sp?) so that's all I'm sayin'...
