Will Carlos Lee Repeat?

Postby shortsavage » Sun Feb 22, 2004 5:25 pm

Lately I have been getting this gut feeling that Carlos Lee is not the player that his 2003 stats suggest. I know that he will only be turning 28 during the 2004 season, but does he realistically have brighter years in his future?

Guy is for real.

Or at least I hope, because he's my third outfielder. Seriously though, he's got the skills and is at an age where he should only be getting better. Risky as your second outfielder. Very solid as your third in my opinion.
It's time to roll the dice.

IMO he will not put up numbers like last year. He will put up a little better numbers.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I think he will put up numbers close to what he did last year....and if Konerko comes back to form...he realistically could improve those numbers.... :-)

I've been keeping my eye on Lee since 2001, and I am shocked that he took THIS LONG to put up those numbers. I thought 2002 was gonna be his real breakthrough.

I think his SB will go down but the rest of his stats will be the same or better.

I think that he will increase his production slightly from last year. He's the real deal.

His 03 season was identical to his 02 season, just the abs increased from 492 to 623.

OPS

02 845
02 839

RC/27

02 5.89
03 5.95

I think he stays at this level, but won't improve. His walk rate is low.
