4) Lee has no one hitting in front of him that will consistently be on base for him, which will limit him in his RBI totals.

Ha! Say Lee Bats fourth in the Lineup, he has Either Todd Walker or Mark Grudzielanek in front of him followed by Corey Patterson and then Sammy Sosa. Your a crazy to of said that comment! <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

I would like to point out the OBP's of the three players slated to hit in front of him:

Grudzielanek -- .329 over his career
Patterson -- .289 over his career
Sosa -- .305 over the second half of last season after he dropped all pretenses of even trying to be a complete hitter.

These are poor table setters for Lee. What makes it worse is that Sosa and Patterson are power hitters, so their hits are less likely to be beneficial to Lee.

I must also point out that we're talking about fantasy baseball in this section of the Cafe. That means any allegiances you have to your team should be left at the front counter. Being a homer does no one any good here.

And I would also like to point out that CPAT's career hasnt been very long at all because of a torn ACL that took him out for the season last year. You watch Lee will shine in Wrigley.

i'm leaning towards keeping lee in my league

we run a draft round based keeper, and he was a 9th round pick last year

I think helton is on the way down, but lee isn't at that level......I do think 15-20 SB's is reasonable for lee, and 30-35 homeruns should be a given......If he could only hit .310 he's be a top-5 guy
YAHOO! RULES!!!!!

I'm a huge Cub fan, but Lee won't be 3rd in fantasy purposes. Having him higher than 7th IMO is a stretch.

Agreed. He is Bagwell with 10 more SBs a year (Bagwell circa 2004, not 1997). Nothing to get too excited about.
