Robertson $4.00 Lee $5.00 . Similar stats all the way around. Both started strong last year and weakened the second half. Both gave up about 30 homeruns. But going against what might be the norm. I am leaning toward taking Robertson. I think he gets m,ore run support. I also think the Tigers have a better bullpen.And the ballpark won't hurt either.Oh and that $1.00 savings could buy me another player at the end of the draft. Your comments please.
Nate Robertson for sure. I owned both last year and if I got the feeling that Nate ate up more innings in his starts whereas Cliff usually went 6 inning deeps and needed luck on his side to keep decent ratios.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
Lee has dynamite stuff, but his command is still questionable. If he harnesses his control, he is a top of the rotation guy. Robertson is probably more reliable at this point, but doesn't have Lee's upside. As for your choice, it depends on whether you can afford to gamble or need to go the safe route.
Looking at projections from different sites. The K's doesn't appear to be a big difference. An average of 10-15 for the year. with the $1.00 savings I might get a pitcher that gets me 125 K's. seems to me its a net gain of about 110 K's plus the other catagories in our 5x5 AL only. ERA WHIP Wins, K's and Saves. I think I like the pluses more with Robertson. Better offense, Bigger ball park and cheaper by $1.00
I still like lee more, even for a buck more -- i just think his upside is much much higher and could be in for a good yr -- robertson....well just not sold on him at all (never am with anyone on detriot)
