Agreed. 2-3 with a HR is good evidence that he's fine.
lovin this guy. i'm worried he could slow down, but i dont think there's any way i can deal him
You're right to have some concern. He had 22 homers before the break last year and only 10 after.
That having been said, there is far more reason to be optimistic. It's his second year facing NL pitching and his strikeouts are down and walks are up. Great sign.
He's also a major trade candidate, which could put him in an even better position to produce.
I have Lee in both of my keeper leagues. I love those small-market bargain studs.
If he goes somewhere where he gets some media attention, he's probably going to cost at least a late second-round pick for years to come.
