the fact is that derrek lee has always been seen as a guy that hadn't achieved what many expected of him yet, and all the arrows are pointing upwards for him now. this isn't the small ballin marlins anymore either, this team is out to be bashin and smashin not getting people on and over. i like lee to have a great year nad hve him ranked ahead of the likes of sexson, palmeiro and bagwell because of the steals.
