I took him at the end of the 3rd round in a 14 team draft and was fine with it. He is batting 3rd in what should be a good lineup and in a hitters park, hard to completely fail when you are in that situation.
Pretty much, but I can expect the same numbers from James Loney and he's going 13 rounds cheaper.
I mean Loney's having an OK Spring, right?
I also think the wrist continuing to heal was an impediment for Lee's power from the get-go. For a severe wrist injury, it usually takes a year and a half for it to heal fully and a strong September is indicative of a return to his usual form of 30-35 HR and a .300+ BA.
