Thoughts on Cliff Lee

Postby Precise » Mon Jul 12, 2004 6:40 pm

he's had a good first half and has filled my rotation nicely. his whip is a little high but its hard to fault a guy with a 9-1 record, 3.77 era, and a very good k-ratio.

what are your opinions on him? is he gonna tire in the 2nd half and is it time to trade him while his value is at it peak?

i cut him in a 2-3 start span where he gave up 4-6ish ER per start, but hey, he rebounded and is what, 9-1 3.75ish?

cleveland's offense is young and pretty good, so any pretty good pitcher will likely continue to do well. cliff lee looks like he could go something like 17-5 with an ERA between 3.5 and 4, so i think he's a nice solid SP to have going down the stretch. certainly not the ace of your staff, but as a third to fifth pitcher, he's probably one of the better ones you could have, short of a bonafide all-star-staff.

yeah, i love what lee did in the 1st half for me. he's turned out to be one of the seasons best waiver wire finds for a lot of fantasy owners. but what concerns me is the fact that he has never pitched more than 52 innings in a season and he is on pace to pitch about 190 this year. thats a lot to ask for a young pitcher plus the tribe are trying to win their division so there will be lots of pressure on him.
