Postby swingaway » Sat May 01, 2004 5:42 am

unlike are friend mr riley this guy haves some experience. Lets here see this year he haves a 3.14 era 20ks in 28.2 innings 3 wins with a 1.53 whip not 2 shabby for an Cleveland starter. For info about lee visit http://www.bigleaguers.com and click on players and search for cliff lee. Last year he had 44 ks in 52 innings with 3.61 era with a 1.17 in 9 games before an injury cut short hes season that year. Any way let the lee train begin lol.

A 1.53 whip is too high, he has the same problem has Riley. (too many walks) Ill pass.

Lee did lower his Whip a little after the last start though to give him some credit.

Besides the whip, the stats are solid, but I have heard that he really doesn't have the best stuff in the world, and I too am scared of walks.

I don't know where you heard that, but I would have to disagree. Now obviously I don't think he has the "best stuff in the world", but he does have above average stuff. I have watched this kid pitch many times and he can be downright nasty. Like most young and inexperienced pitchers he does struggle with control from time to time, and putting all those runners on base is going to bite him in the ass eventually(he has yet to give up a HR, but he will), but he has the potential to be the #1 guy in Cleveland as early as next year, so those in keeper leagues should keep a close eye on his development this year.
Eternal vigilance is the price of integrity.

I agree with the WHIP, due to too many walks, being the only thing that is holding him back. I have him in 2 keeper leagues, and the walks usually keep him on the bench. With C. Zambrano, Robertson, & Dontrelle's performances this week, Lee would have been a good option.
