    • This is terrible advice...Hanley or A-Rod?

      Ignore the PREseason rankings. If you can still compete effectively without Lee, definitely go for a solid hitter. If you can get Hanley Ramirez, then great...but chances are people in your league wouldn't be that stupid. There's a reason why Cliff Lee is considered a "sell high" player...he should continue to pitch well, but he won't continue to pitch like Fernando Valenzuela...and he won't win the Cy Young.

    • In 2005, Cliff Lee was 4th place in AL Cy Young voting.
      Cliff is on pace for a nice year. I have him finishing the with an ERA
      around 3.50, which is phenomenal for Lee. He'll finish with 12-14 wins... the Tribe's offense will be the worst it has in years.

      If you can trade him for a top-tier offensive player, Carlos Lee was mentioned, then take it.

      If you can do as good as Ryan Braun, good for you.

      Cliff Lee is a decent player to hold on to, but a great candidate for a trade.
