Even with reports that Lee would play today, I decided to bench him in one of my dynasty leagues, opted to go with Adrian Gonzalez at 1B, who had been my UTI, with McCann at C and Barrett at UTI.

In my other realgm/dynasty, I have opted to stick with Lee as im using Scott Hatteberg at UTI and my only bench guys are Henry Blanco and Ronny Cedeno at this time.

If Lee is still hurting, the Cubs would be wise to shut him down and get him right for 2007, nothing can be gained if he injuries himself further this year.

All I was saying is prior to last season Derrek Lee had not been a top 20 (1st and 2nd round) player in any league. Your stats prove it: .275avg, 30hr, 90rbi, 15 sb isn't top 20 numbers. There have been other players with monster single seasons (Adrian Beltre and Oliver Perez), so injury or not it wasn't certain that Lee would duplicate his 2005 production. In fact, after the all star break in 2005 Lee only batted .287-19-35.

So if you insist on calling my statement the "dumbest thing you have heard", fine with me, but on draft day I was taking Albert Pujols, David Ortiz, and Lance Berkman at first base over Derrek Lee, so don't hate if you made the wrong choice...

It looks as though Lee is out again today.

Yep, I had removed him from my line-up in one of my dynasty/realgm leagues to go with Adrian Gonzalez at 1B, McCann at C and UTI Michael Barrett. In my other dynasty/realgm I just removed D.Lee for Scott Hatteberg and inserted Ronny Cedeno at UTI. I have a short bench that included Ronny Cedeno and Henry Blanco.

I'm guessing it could be that he is 4 for 23 with 6 Ks and no extra base hits lifetime against Pedro Astacio.

That's why I had him on the bench today. Maybe Dusty thought the same thing.

Baker: Lee may not be OK until '07

By Dave van Dyck
Tribune staff reporter

July 20, 2006, 10:42 PM CDT

After having Sunday and Monday off to rest his still-healing right wrist, Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee had another one Thursday. That's three days off in a span of five, leading to the question of just how serious the injury remains and how long it will take for him to be 100 percent.

"He's OK; it's just not getting any better, that's all," manager Dusty Baker said.

And the rest of the season?

"This could go into the winter, and hopefully [after that] he will be 100 percent next year," Baker said. "These things tend to linger, because everything you do bothers you, whether it's combing your hair or brushing your teeth."

Lee admitted the healing process from two broken bones in the wrist is "frustrating."

"I don't know how to look at it," he said. "I thought it would be further along by now. It's something I have to be patient with. The program is to play a couple of days and rest it when we can."

Lee is hitting .243 with one homer and four RBIs since returning from the disabled list June 25. He finished the homestand with three hits in 13 at-bats, so apparently the pain is affecting his swing.

"I don't want to comment on that," Lee said.

I really wish they would move him to the DL and just shut him down for the year instead of playing him only 2-3 days per week. I'd rather not waste a bench spot on him, but I can't dump him in my keeper league.

Derrek Lee, 1B CHC

News: The Cubs placed first baseman Derrek Lee on the 15-day DL with post-traumatic inflammation of his right wrist. In a corresponding roster move, Chicago has recalled infielder Ryan Theriot from Triple-A Iowa.
