Any Reason To Ditch D. Lee for K. Morales?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Any Reason To Ditch D. Lee for K. Morales?

Postby Tony B. » Thu Apr 30, 2009 12:58 pm

I'm a bit fed up with D. Lee - am I wrong to think Morales can do what D. Lee plus be a tick higher in AVG, HR, and RBI's?

No reason to drop Lee for Morales.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Dropping Derek Lee is outrageous because he has more value than that. You can trade him to someone else and get value. This is a classic package-upgrade situation.

Step 1: Find a position you'd like to upgrade

Step 2: Take a look at all the rosters in your league. Find several teams (if possible) that have a player you'd like to trade for AND that could use a bat like Derek Lee's

Step 3: Make some offers, see what you get out of it

What it boils down to is that you don't want Derek Lee, I don't want Derek Lee, most people don't want Derek Lee. But he bats 3rd in a very potent lineup and has put together strong seasons in the past. You'll be surprised at what he might help you get.

I traded to get Lee early in the season with the intentions of moving him. He allowed me to package and upgrade to get Prince Fielder.

All true points which I agree with. I was just thinking this really could be the year D. Lee doesn't reach 20 HR or 90 RBI and becomes that waiver-wire fodder 1B everyone picks up and drops due to hot & cold spells. He has absolutely no trade value in my league and if he became hot, it wouldn't be enough to move him for anything significant. Thanks for the replies!
