Carlos Lee: Why is he so quietly having a breakout season?

I see him as this years Bobby abreu who did this same thing last year. I dont know about 'rounds' but he went this year for 3rd tier player type money in both of my auction leagues. Just like abreu last year he is putting up 1st tier player level #'s and likely will go that high next year.

Yeah I had my eye on him from day one this year, and drafted him in the 5th round. People told me I was nuts. Ha. They also told me I was nuts for taking D Lee in round 6, then An Jones in round 8... GUESS WHO'S LAUGHIN NOW!!! If you look at C Lee's stats the last 2 years, there's no reason to suggest this is going to slow down. This guy will be one of the top 5 OF.

I'll agree no one is really throwing ANY offers at me for him. It's strange.

I drafted him in the 3rd round in a midseason league with a few laughs, but I agree he's a top 5 OF.


Yahoo ranking is for the sheep...

Carlos is always underrated. I traded Arod for Carlos, Reyes and Izzy earlier in the season. Very happy how it played out so far.

Think I will have to turn down Sizemore and Grudzielanek for Lee though. :-?


I was OFFERED Beltran and Sheets for C. Lee.
I love Lee, but even I couldn't turn that down. Hope one or both of those two can turn it around, or I might end up regretting that one.

Yeah, I doubt I could have brought myself to hit "Reject" on that one either. :-)

I have mixed feelings on that one....on the one hand i learned the hard way last year that it is good to :

A) Buy low

ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR


B) sell High

doing both at the same time was disASSSSSSTerous for me like 4 times last year and a swore i wouldnt do it again. then again, if someone offered me THAT deal i would be sorrrrely tempted to risk it.

I think he's having an unnoticed season because the guy he was traded for (Pods) has been even more valuable to the best team in baseball.

One of the few trades that were greatly benefitual to both teams.

He's keeping in first place by putting up stats close to D Lee-owned by
the second place team. Not bad for a 6th round pick
