Man on the Decline

Posted: June 16, 2011 in General

At 34 Carlos seems to be in a state of decline.  Last year for his standards he put up poor numbers especially batting under .250.  A victim of circumstance? Maybe? Lance Berkman had his worst statistical year before he got traded last year leaving Lee without much to work with.  Lee continued his downward trend for the first month of the season hitting just .194.  Once a staple to be in every fantasy leagues lineup he surprisingly is still owned in 74% of leagues.  In May and June Lee has significantly raise his avg to .251 at the end of May, and he is now hitting .268.  Major improvements in obp have also happened especially in the last two weeks he is has a .439 obp.  This all sounds very promising, but in reality Lee owners want home runs and rbi’s to go along with that nice batting avg.  Lee has 5 hr’s terrible by his standard and any player owned in fantasy leagues not known for stealing bases or playing middle infield.  His 35 rbi’s are decent, but again I don’t know when the power returns.  I guess we have to get used to the fact that people change, and in real baseball I’m glad Carlos has hit his stride as an average man lacking power, but he gets on base.  I just don’t have use for him on my fantasy team.
