Another line to chew on.....

Postby J35J » Thu Oct 12, 2006 3:15 pm

I would take Manny over Lee next year but here is what I have for '07 numbers (as of right now)....


Manny
.311 38 115 95 0

Carlos Lee (Hitting middle of the lineup in Arlington 8-o )
.292 36 115 103 14

Manny is up .20 on avg, slight edge in HR, same RBI, Lee has 5-10 more runs and 10-15 more sb.

....... just something to ponder......

But what are the chances Lee ends up back with Texas?

Those numbers look pretty good. I don't know if Lee's BA will be that high; it certainly could be, but I'd go with something like .285, which is closer to his career line. Other than that, the only thing I'm skeptical about is the SBs. I mean, he certainly could steal 15+ (he stole 7 in 1/3 of a season there this year), but there's also the chance that he just doesn't. I don't think I'd count on more than 10.

Given those, I'd take Lee, though BA is underrated. However, I think the Lee projection is a tad on the high side.

Does show the importance of drafting guys who can contribute all round. If it's an OBP league, however, I don't touch Lee with a bargepole.

Lee had a career year in HR, SB and BA... I'd still take Manny over him although Lee would be worth more if he comes close to 07.

Probably his ceiling but I don't see any real reason why he can't hit those numbers depending on where he ends up next year.

Like I said, I would take Manny over Lee as well but if Lee is back with Arlington I don't think the difference between the two, if any, will be very much!

Manny. Not even close imo. Track record alone indicates Manny is the man and barring an injury can post your projection of 38/115 without breaking much of a sweat. He posted 35/102 in only 449 ABs this year missing about a month. He has posted 40+ Hrs and 130+ rbis routinely in his career.

Those numbers for Lee are pretty much at or near the high end already imo. He had a career year this season but is generally consistent and good for 30/110 with a .285 or so avg and SBs in the teens.

The only way I'd take Lee over Manny was if he ended up in a stacked line up or if he went to a great hitters park.
