I thought I might have a few more Lee backers but I can't complain either way really, they are back to back in my OF rankings so I wouldn't disagree with anyone who takes Manny.


LOL, better luck next time Jason :-D


You have to bring in controversial topics such as position scarcity in order for this to be interesting.



I was thinking the same thing when I made this topic. Here you go then.....


Carlos Lee

vs

Derek Jeter


5x5 redraft


Lee for me.

I'll take Lee as well, I think Jeter will drop off substantially this season.

Why would you say that? I don't see a significant drop off. He's durable, consistent and puts up excellent overall numbers. And he plays a thin position (just kidding). I'd take Jeter.

Where else would you go?

Good call on the position scarcity. ;-7

Well in this case, it depends on what you see as a significant dropoff.

2006

.346 118 14 97 34

2005

.318 122 19 70 14

That was a huge jump in production, and I just can't see it happening again, especially the SB's now that the Yankee's Lineup is healthy.

Heres what I think he'll be around for '07

.320 120 15 70 15

Still a good year for sure, But i'd rather have Lee for the HR and RBI

Note: This is Carlos Guillen production, plus five or so SB (the extra runs and the lesser RBI kinda cancel out).

Shhhh... dont tell anyone about him. :-X

But really, its gonna be tough for Guillen to repeat those numbers again this season. He had troubles with injuries all of his career and didnt miss much time last season, so that certainly is a risky situation. With Jeter, you know what you're gonna get everytime, thats why he's such a value.

I'd take Manny but not with as mure confidence as most of the other guys.

We've already decided that, the question now is

Jeter vs. El Caballo
