Cliff Lee VS AL West

Postby Simply Fred » Wed Dec 16, 2009 7:32 pm

Would like to be more excited, but the record causes concern. This is a small sample size, so take it for what it's worth. Selected only the 2008 and 2009 most recent, relevant, and Lee at his best (vs AL West sans Seattle):

5W-2L in 7 GS. Stellar. 42K in 46.1 IP. What's not to like?

4.16 ERA/1.37 WHIP. The culprit: in three games vs Texas, 26 hits in 16.2 IP. Oofta. Lee managed 2W anyway. Not sure yet how Seattle scores enough to get similar outcomes. Maybe he collars Texas, maybe he doesn't.

I'm keeping my expectations in check.

I don't think 3 games is enough of a sample size and how many were in Texas vs. at home? Texas is a notorious hitters park. It's like getting down on someone for not pitching well in Coors.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Not trying to condemn the guy. The 4.16 ERA and the 1.37 WHIP are overall for the SEVEN games, including the 3 with Texas (not limited to). The SEVEN represents the sum total of his track record against the AL WEST (sans SEA) over the last 2 years. It is what it is.

F-Her pitched 2 games AT Texas last year: .086 ERA/1.00 WHIP. (14 hits in 21 IP as opposed to Lee's 26 hits in 16.2 IP).

Cust Kayin' if folks are expecting the second coming of F-Her, well....
