So -- I used my fairly high waiver-priority early in the season to nab carlos lee, thinking he'd get back to normal sometime soon. How much longer should I wait? Its a 10 - team keeper, 6x6 roto league... I'm usually in contention every year, but a bunch of crappy starts has me wallowing near the bottom of the standings.... Here's my roster, and some notable FAs. Also thinking tejada may be wearing out his welcome....any thoughts would be much appreciated
C Geovany Soto 1B Adrián González 2B Chase Utley 3B Álex Rodríguez SS Miguel Tejada LF Alfonso Soriano CF Vernon Wells RF Ichiro Suzuki Util Adam Dunn BN Jay Bruce BN Carlos Lee BN Kelly Johnson DL Jorge Posada
SP CC Sabathia SP Matt Cain SP Johan Santana RP José Valverde RP Frank Francisco P Matt Lindstrom P Kerry Wood P Matt Thornton BN Brett Anderson BN John Axford DL Huston Street DL Josh Beckett
NOTABLE FAs aramis ramirez alexei ramirez michael bourne ryan theriot josh willingham cory hart scott rolen drew stubbs rajai davis angel pagan james loney jose guillen
carlos silva brett cecil jon garland anibel sanchez tim hudson
Agree about dumping Lee. Don't know what categories you need the most help in but Davis will help you at SB's and Willingham put up some good HR & RBI numbers but don't expect much in the average. I also think that Aramis Ramirez is going to break out anytime.
doesn't really look like it right now, but it wouldn't suprise me if Lee is a better option for the last few months of the year than Soriano Raj Davis is leading off and hot right now; kind of amazing for me to see him & Bourn as FA's. Guess in a 10 teamer with 3 OF spots its a different game. Still, sb's count right?
I would not drop him. I can't imagine your WW or FA list has anything better than Lee. If you do drop him, another team will surely pick him up, meaning you "lose" him for nothing, so he might have a little trade value based on his name alone... Does anyone know what Lee has left on his contract? Any chance Houston unloads him, Berkman, and/or Oswalt to start rebuilding? A move away from Houston might help him...
thx for the help in mine. I do not really see anyone that has MORE value than Lee. But I do understand your frustation. We all picked up lee thinking we would get consistancy. I would hold on for a bit longer and then see what happens. I think Lee will be traded this year to another team that this could help him.
