Clifton Phifer Lee



An overly simplistic (and yet optimistic) look at Cliff Lee this year compared to last year.

 

Last year was traded July 29th, this year was traded July 9th.

 

Last season he made an immediate impact by making 5 good starts bringing his ERA down to 2.62

He followed that up with 1 good start and 6 bad starts.

Stats from those final 7 starts:  4 BB, 35 K, 7 HR. ERA goes up to 3.22

 

This season after the trade he had a bad start followed by 3 good starts bringing his ERA down to 2.40

 

He has (so far) followed that up with the month of August.  He had 7 starts, 1 was good and 6 were bad. 

Stats for those 7 starts:  5 BB, 47 K, 6 HR. ERA is up to 3.37

 

The optimistic part?  Cliff made 5 starts in the playoffs.  He went 4-0 with his team also winning his no decision. He struck out 33, walked 6 and gave up 0 homers.
