Found July 05, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
Cliff Lee finally got his first win of the year on Wedneday...but it wasn't easy at all. The Mets took a 2-0 lead into the seventh, and there was potential for another winless Lee today.

The team scored six in the eighth and ninth, capped off by a two-run Ty Wigginton homer in the ninth inning to finish off a 9-2 Phillies win, and get Lee his first win of the season. least we don't have to deal with dicussions about on how Cliff Lee doesn't know how to win. Game of the Night: White Sox 5, Rangers 4 (ten innings). The Rangers got three runs in the first inning, and an intrepid national writer said something along the lines of "welp, looks like the Rangers might put 19 on the White Sox tonight!" Of course, Chicago scored four runs in the second and took a 4-3 lead, lasting unt...

Daily Notes | Cliff Lee Enters the Win Column

This season has been an excellent case study in valuing hitters over pitchers on draft day. None of the most consistent starters for the past three to five seasons have been themselves.

He has...
