Derek Lee or Chipper Jones

Postby GameOn » Mon Mar 29, 2004 3:17 pm

I just received this trade offer:

Lee and Ensberg for Isringhausen and Chipper Jones

Should I do it?

Its a points league so walks also count. I have pretty good hitting so far and I could put Huff or Teixeira at first base to replace Lee.

My question is:

How good will Lee be this year? Seems like 40 HRs could be within his reach.

Who would you prefer Chipper or Lee?

Lee, 1B is deep, but OF is much deeper. On playing merits alone, I might say Chipper, as he'll hit for a better avg, but Lee has more power potential and will also steal 15-20 bases.

I like him in Wrigley with that lineup too.

Kind of depends on your roster, but I'd rather have Lee.

hmmmmmm, you *might* be able to get more for Lee if someone really needs a first baseman, but now that I think about it, you'll have an infield of Chavez, Huff, etc. with Chipper essentially relpacing Huff in the OF, it sounds like it amounts to a wash, and you could really use Izzy. Don't know, maybe your whole roster would lead to more conclusive answers.

Ok, looking at that I'd say that the only thing you really get out of the deal is Izzy, which of course you already knew. However, I think keeping Lee, to go along with Soriano and Reyes, you'll be pretty solid in the SB department without having to compromise your overall offense by playing a guy like Crawford. I might try to move Crawford for a closer instead. You might be able to get a guy like Octavio Dotel or better with Crawford.

Don't forget it's a points league, not a roto league. I think that may be overrating Crawford a bit in that aspect.

RIGHT, points league. In that case, closers aren't at such a premium either. hmm, I've never done a points league, so I'm somewhat unqualified to answer. I will speculate that BA doesn't count, though which kind of further sways the deal in favor of Lee. I'll leave any further analysis to someone more knowledgeable. I've only ever done roto.
