So what are people saying about Lee now? He's been the star of the last two postseasons, and has been phenomenal when healthy during the regular seasons as well.
I see him as a top 5 SP considering he is in the NL, on a team with a great offense, and surrounded by aces. I think the natural competitiveness of a guy like Lee will benefit him in the sense that I see Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, and Hamels having an internal competition to be as good as the other guys in the rotation. For the same reason, I'm high on Oswalt for this year and I've always been a Hamels guy.
Still I think Lee is the clear number 2 and I like him almost as much as Halladay. As deep as SP is this year, I think Lee is a great end of the 3rd round pick in 12 team leagues, right around the Lincecum/Felix Hernandez territory.
