A broken record of false data
(unless you were reffering to Lee's production in 2003)! Cliff Lee pitched 52.1 innings in the majors last season (in order to be a rookie this season he would have needed to stay under 50 innings in 2003). He is not a rookie. Hehe, I thought that he was though when I was bragging about picking the AL ROY in April
Cliff has had his share of luck. But he is also really good at getting out of jams. As his WHIP implies, he lets a lot of runners get on base (mainly via walks). He is going to be amazing if he can ever harness consistent control of his pitches.
Pitching in A, AA, AAA and the bigs, Lee only threw 132 innings last season (his third year of professional ball). He threw 154.2 innings in his first year of professional ball and 156.1 in his second. So, that is 147.2 innings per year so far in his professional career. This year he is on pace for 201.2 innings
I do not know how he could avoid slowing down in the second half of this season. He will still probably be above average. Count every win beyond 15 as a bonus. 150Ks would be swell too.
