Is Derek Lee worth waiver priority?

Postby Relddem » Mon Feb 28, 2011 9:45 pm

12-team standard Yahoo! roto league. I have the #1 waiver priority and Derek Lee was dropped and clears on March 2. Roster as follows:

C - Brian McCann
1B - Carlos Pena
2B - Brian Roberts
3B - David Wright
SS - Starlin Castro
OF - Carl Crawford, Nelson Cruz, Drew Stubbs
Util - Adam Lind (1B,OF), Ike Davis (1B)
BN - Tsuyoshi Nishioka (2B,SS), Dexter Fowler (OF), Brandon Belt (1B)

SP - Jon Lester, Cole Hamels
RP - Matt Thornton, Joel Hanrahan
P - Francisco Liriano, Shaun Marcum, Jhoulys Chacin, Koji Uehara
BN - Jeremy Hellickson, Mike Minor

I was thinking about picking up Lee and dropping Belt. I kinda feel like I shouldn't waste waiver priority though and see if he sneaks through. I have pretty good 1B depth to account for lack of a high end option, so I'm not desperate, but I do think Lee's a decent bounceback sleeper. Still, I also feel Belt has more upside than any other 1B on my roster, even if he doesn't come up till May.

I think Lee should have a decent bounceback season in Baltimore, but I'd probably hold onto the #1 waiver priority and wait for a big prospect or someone else to come along during the season. And at this point in the season, you could probably catch other interested owners napping and get Lee through clean free agency.
