Derrek Lee's dismal Spring

Postby Guzman24 » Wed Mar 19, 2008 3:31 pm

I know its "only Spring training" but for a guy who's been trying to find his groove now for the past few seasons these numbers are a little bit disconcerting.

6/40 0HR's .150AVG :-o

Any thoughts on Lee for this year??

If you have him, you should cut bait NOW. The guy is tanking and will only get worse. Last year was not a fluke. Get back in there and Sell! Sell! Sell!

Or, it could be that this is just March, and you shouldn't worry too much. Your call.

Don't worry about it, however...I've been staying away from Lee in my drafts, and not because of his ST, theres just a lot of other 1B's I'd rather have.

I understand your frustration with all the posts about players tanking in spring training but Lee's situation is a little different and I think it warrants discussion.

They guy's numbers have been mediocre at best since he came back from injury and his numbers this spring are absoloutely awful.

He's a top 40 player on most draft lists and I'm just not sure if he should be there any more.

If you want to discuss concern over Lee because of his injury or "mediocre" ( :-? ) stats from last year...fine. But you're talking about ST.

Yes

22HR's 82RBI's 6SB in 570AB's last season does seem pretty "mediocre" to me for a first baseman getting drafted in the 4th round.

Maybe I'm missing something?

Lee was killing the ball in September.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

What are we talkin' about here? Spring training?

Spring training???

Spring training? It is as simple as that. It ain't about that at all. It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about spring training. We're sitting here, and he's supposed to be the franchise player, and we're talking about spring training. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about spring training, not a regular season game, not a playoff game, not a game, but we're talking about spring training. Not the game that he goes out there and die for and play every game last it's his last but we're talking about spring training man. How silly is that?

Now I know that I'm supposed to lead by example and all that but I'm not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I honestly do but we're talking about spring training. We're talking about spring training man. We're talking about spring training. We're talking about spring training. We're not talking about the season. We're talking about spring training. When you come to the field, and you see him play, you've seen him play right, you've seen him give everything he's got, but we're talking about spring training right now.

Hey I hear you, it's funny to me to, hey it's strange to me too but we're talking about spring training man, we're not even talking about the season, when it actually matters, we're talking about spring training.
