Well considering you are starting Alex Rios, I would grab Lee. Plus Hudson is hurt so why burn a #1 WW on a guy that is hurt as who knows how long he misses.

Really though, it has to be a very deep league for someone to even have Rios on their roster let alone start the guy, There has to be someone better on the free agent wire in a 12 team league.

Umm I hate Rios. But you are talking about about a guy who is coming off of a bad year, who is a career .275 hitter with decent pop who will steal a few bags.

Maybe...What did he do last year? And he is like 1 hr and 4 RBIs with 1 SB this year. I understand he could bounce back...but he is still nothing special even if you give him the benefit of the doubt so far. Obviously I am not a believer as I have seen far too much garbage from the likes of Mr. Rios to ever want him on my roster. I read some stuff that he is going the opposite way more so maybe he is going to have a decent year for him, but I just would not want to deal with it. At a min you should hedge the bet and get a competent backup bench player. Lee is nothing special, but he is serviceable when you have 48 OFs being started.

If I were you I would look to deal Montero. You are never going to play him with Santana around and Butler in your Util slot so he is burning a hole in your roster at the moment. The occassional y off day start (assuming daily league) is not worth much. Trade him for an upgrade somewhere to free the bench spot and improve the team if you can.

I would say Hudson, you have a few players with alot of injury risk in your rotation, getting that kind of depth would be good.

I'm pretty skeptical on Lee, and I don't think he would add a significant contribution to your OF, it's pretty solid as is.

Def. Hudson, when healthy the guy can flat out pitch. Lee is extremely iffy in my book.

I'd pick up Hudson and drop Lilly or Casilla. Personally, I'm not on big on Lee.
Remember me?
