All I can say is wow. Cliff Lee dominated the powerful New York Yankees lineup in Game 3 of the ALCS in such a fashion, that all I can say is wow.
Cliff Lee has been so utterly dominant, especially in this postseason, that it's difficult to remember back a few years ago when he was just a very average pitcher.
Cliff Lee turned into a full-time starting pitcher for the Cleveland Indians at the start of the 2004 season. From 2004 to 2007, which was his last poor season, Lee posted a 4.76 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and a ERA+ of only 92. In other words, he just wasn't very good.
