ok now i have heard talks, 'hes done for the season', others saying 'he will be back'...so what do you all think?? any latest, greatest news reports last i heard was from yahoo...

Aug 3 Lee is capable of doing everything except baseball stuff as he continues his rehabilitation on his right wrist for the Cubs. An MRI on Monday showed the wrist is normal. "We're not going to do anything baseball-wise until he feels 100 percent," Cubs athletic trainer Mark O'Neal said. "Like (general manager Jim Hendry) said the other day, we're not shutting him down. We want to know where we are with him when the season's over..."
Advice: Lee has been slowed by a fractured right wrist suffered on April 19 when he collided with the Los Angeles Dodgers' Rafael Furcal. The first baseman is hitting .261 with four homers and 14 RBIs in 34 games for the Cubs this season after winning the NL batting title with a .335 average and adding 46 homers and 107 RBIs.


so what do you all think??

He's full on dead weight. Look at his numbers after his return from the DL initially... Horrible. Cut him and pick up some of the call-ups, Garza, Saunders, even Delmon Young will suit you better in the playoffs in your league than Lee will. It's at that point in the season where one month means more than the whole rest. Call-ups on teams out of the race will be getting huge looks and guaranteed playing time, whereas ailing star players on playoff teams will be rested and ailing stars on teams out of the race will be shut down.

Lee is your ticket to losing your league.

Amen bro. I was debting cutting him for someone who could actually do something. Well, much to my surprise and joy I was offered Nomar for him a couple of days ago. It goes to show that Lee owners need to shop him around a little bit and see if they can get anything. Just his name and his numbers from last year hold a lot of value in some peoples eyes.
