I mean, D Lee is a player whos never hit over .300 for a season and his career high in HRs is 32. Right now hes almost hitting .400 and on pace for 45-50+ HRs and its almost half way through the season.
Nobody uses the "he's gotta be on steroids" line anymore, when 2 years ago it was mentioned once a week about a new player it seemed.
Know why no one has used it with Lee? Because it'd be flat out false. If you know baseball, you've been waiting with a lot of other people for Derrek Lee to find himself and really play up to his ability, and that's what we're seeing. It's all Derrek, and hopefully it'll just keep coming. The man is a monster.
