His wrist is still weak and is not getting stronger. Dusty hinted that it may take until next spring before it is completely healthy.

I'd try and move DLee in non-keeper leagues for as much value as possible NOW. I would not be surprised if they shut him down for the year as not to risk further injury.

He came in today as a pinch hitter and flied out to the warning track in deep center.

I'd probably take Baker's word over one pinch hit AB that resulted in an out.

Lee has killed Armas over his career. He could get a start tomorrow for that reason.

I wouldnt take the word of Baker, he is the most overrated mgr in baseball. It was nice to see him come in as a PH but the fact that he has basically missed 3 straight games shows how much of a problem that wrist might be from here on out.

He's not a good manager, but that has nothing to do with him being right about the strength of Lee's wrist.

Killing me..

Postby prricci » Sun Jul 23, 2006 8:38 am

Anyone here every have one player that always kills you? Yeah...it D. Lee. Two years ago I took him thinking that was his breakout year...
medicore year ensued. Last year he breaks out. This year I draft him and he is injured alll year.

Beltran and Lee are my achilles heels. Every year I draft one they either have a mediocre year or injuries or both. Yes you guessed it I drafted Beltran 1st last year and Lee 1st this year...killing me.


Just needed to vent...

suppposedly they're experimenting with new tape on his wrist so that's why he was out the past 2 games....he's supposed to be back in the lineup on sunday.

Lee is in today's line-up hitting in an unusal spot for him, 4th. He is batting behind A-Ram and in front of Jones. Todd Walker is also out the line-up, replaced by Neifi Perez who will hit 2nd. Angel Pagan is getting the start in LF as well.

But its good to see D.Lee get a start, but from what i read yesturday he has had good success with Tony Armas Jr.
