I think Vlad is ranked a few spots higher than Lee mainly because there's a focus on the stats being quite good despite the lack of protection and for what it's worth, the Angels have bolstered him with Torii Hunter. Vlad had a rather unusual power drought in midseason that pulled down his HR total some, was sidelined because of the triceps problem, and of course, he wasn't getting the lineup support to knock him in consistently.
Vlad's no longer the 5-cat threat and that's a good thing. Not as much reckless baserunning from Vlad and a few DH days here and there could go some way in keeping him healthy and in good form. I don't see his .310, 30 HR, and 120 RBI days as quite over yet.
