Derrek Lee (5 HR's) will hit 35+ this year & drive in 100.

He is hitting the ball square and hard now. A hot summer in Wrigley Field will be the answer for the traditionally slow starter. Add in the 15-20 bags he'll snag and you have a sleeping giant on your hands. LAST CHANCE - Trade for him now! You'll be glad you did.

Lee is a better option than Overbay. Lee is traditionally a slow starter...he'll come around.

I'd say that's a safe bet. Even if Sexson comes back (I don't think he will), he won't be the same player. Take Lee.

IF its a keeper, you might not want to drop Sexson But in a one year league, definately drop him for Lee.

Lee is close to Sexson in production anyway........even if, by chance, he comes back next week, it could end up being beneficial for you still. But don't worry, I'm pretty sure Sexson is out for a while.

It's been 1 week since I started this post - let's see how Mr. Lee has done over that span . . .

10 hits, 6 runs, 2 HR's, 8 RBI's, .385 average, and a stolen base.

I hate (or is it love :*) ) to say it but I told you so :-D

Did you go after him when "you heard it here first?"
