If it is a non-keeper, who is going to give you squat for Lee at this point? He has no trade value.
Dropping him is an option if you need the roster space, but if you have an open DL slot I would just assume stash him and see if something develops for the better in the next few weeks. He could be back in a few eeks and give you some OK production for Sept. But most likely he is going to be sub-par for the remainder of the season. That is if he plays again this year at all as teh Cubs really have no reason to bring him back at this point.
I think that the real question is his value in a keeper league. I own him in a 10-team keep-8 league, and it's gonna be a really hard decision. (I also own Prior and Harden, so I'm gonna have a LOT of hard decisions. I already dropped Matsui. Let's just say that it's been a tough year.)
If there are less than 50 players kept in a league, he's probably gonna get dropped. But between 50-100 players being kept, it's probably worth keeping him.
