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.



I would think if you are in a 10 team/keep 8 or 80 players kept keeper, you would almost certainly be keeoing Lee. You would have to have a totally awesome team to have 8 players on your squad that are better. Prior I would let walk without thinking twice about it. Harden I probably let walk also unless you have no one better for that last pick.

I'm already looking at him as a 2007 semi-sleeper.

I probably will keep him. It's just that he hasn't done crap since he injured his wrist. I was high on him when he came off the DL, but then he doesn't do anything and goes right back on the DL. Keeping Lee is simply an act of faith.

Cubs clearly brought him back too soon imo. I think Lee is no where near as good as his 05 season. However, he is still a solid player and certainly a top 80 pick if he is healthy. And like I mentioned, you would have to have a pretty good team to have 8 better options on your squad.
