No One Is Talking About Derrek Lee?

Postby Ed Koch » Mon Jul 31, 2006 11:44 pm

Seriously. What are we going to do? Do you just drop him now? I don't see him being of any legit fantasy value for the rest of the season.

I have Overbay, Youkilis and don't see anyone worth it on the wire for 1B.

I can also just drop him and go for anyone.





Trade Ideas?

He does no thave a lot of value in non-keeper leagues. If you have an open DL slot, I would just put him there.

And not drop him? And not offer him in trades?

If it is a non-keeper, who is going to give you squat for Lee at this point? He has no trade value.

Dropping him is an option if you need the roster space, but if you have an open DL slot I would just assume stash him and see if something develops for the better in the next few weeks. He could be back in a few eeks and give you some OK production for Sept. But most likely he is going to be sub-par for the remainder of the season. That is if he plays again this year at all as teh Cubs really have no reason to bring him back at this point.

It's a dilemma and I'm struggling for power and a good SP, should some of my starters collapse.

I am gonna have to let go of Matsui or D. Lee. Who do you like for the rest of the year?
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

Both have hand injuries.

I assume Matsui will see more time than Derrek.

Hmmm, I think I have to drop Derrek Lee. So sad, so sad.

Right Now I would have to say Matsui I guess, but at this point with these 2, who knows....

I think that the real question is his value in a keeper league. I own him in a 10-team keep-8 league, and it's gonna be a really hard decision. (I also own Prior and Harden, so I'm gonna have a LOT of hard decisions. I already dropped Matsui. Let's just say that it's been a tough year.)

If there are less than 50 players kept in a league, he's probably gonna get dropped. But between 50-100 players being kept, it's probably worth keeping him.
