Take Lee. Sosa's numbers have been declining for quite a while now. His OBP went down 41 points last year, and his OPS went down from 993 to 911. Sosa is good for 35+ home runs, but there are tons of guys who can do that.

Lee has a better average, better OBP (for the OBP leagues), is getting out of a pitcher's park and going to a hitter's haven. Lee batted almost .300 last year away, and has been increasing in avg. every year. Look at his H/A splits:

G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS
77 260 43 63 9 2 11 43 50 63 10 3 .242 .371 .419 .790
78 279 48 83 22 0 20 49 38 68 11 5 .297 .388 .591 .979

Home is on top. Lee had much better overall stats out of Pro Player by far. Look for the guy in the bottom column to show up this year.
