where would you rate

Postby Todd » Fri Jun 28, 2002 12:07 pm

I had wanted to pick up Derrek Lee of the Marlins for a while, but someone else in my league has him, so I'm trying to trade for him. I'm wondering what you would rate his value at. It's not a keeper league, but I think this might be one of the break-out seasons I had expected from Lee. I have Garret Anderson, Jaque Jones, Bernie Williams that I can afford to trade.

Where would you rate Derrek Lee's value at this moment?

If he keeps up his stats in the second half of the season he will end up with 90+ RBI's, 609 AB's (barring injury), 150+ hits, the only thing that I have a problem with him is his BA, last two years he's been at .280+, but this season he's down at .255, if he picks his average up to .270+ I would rate him up with the best 1B. His K's and BA are the only thing that hold him back at all.

Well, he won't be in Helton's class, but top 8-10 in the majors sounds about right. ntremain's right on the mark pointing the finger at Lee's average as the decicive factor. If he does raise his average to .270, that would be quite an impressive second half.

Thanks for the reply. Do you think I could get Lee for Jacque Jones?

Lee is traditionally undervalued, Jones' value is high. If the other team has a viable backup at 1b, they may well accept.
