    Oct 13, 2010, 12:48 PM EST

    Rangers reliever Darren O’Day, on the bullpen chatter during Cliff Lee’s complete-game win over the Rays last night: About the sixth inning we were talking and we said, “Cliff’s gonna finish this game, but let’s warm up so our moms can see us at home.” He likes to finish what he starts. Lee is now…

  2. Cliff Lee coming back out for eighth as Rangers cling to late lead

    Oct 12, 2010, 10:49 PM EST

    C.J. Wilson was up in the bullpen during the seventh inning, but Ron Washington is putting Cliff Lee back out there in the bottom of the eighth inning with a 3-1 lead. Lee has allowed just one run on six hits over seven innings so far tonight, striking out nine and walking none. He has…

    Oct 6, 2010, 4:16 PM EST

    Cliff Lee was somewhat underwhelming in his 15 regular season starts for the Rangers, going 4-6 with a 3.98 ERA, but he was his usual dominant self this afternoon back on the playoff stage. Lee out-dueled David Price with 10 strikeouts in seven innings of one-run ball, with a Ben Zobrist homer accounting for the…

  4. Cliff Lee has posted the lowest walk rate in 77 years

    Oct 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    Cliff Lee won’t be pitching on short rest this postseason. He also, if regular season form holds up, won’t be issuing many walks. From the Elias Stats bureau, via Buster Olney, is this fairly astounding factoid: Lee walked only 18 batters in 212 innings this year. That translates to a walk rate of 0.76 per…

  5. Rangers won't use Cliff Lee on short rest in ALDS

    Oct 1, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    Earlier this week Ron Washington said that Cliff Lee “could go” on short rest in the ALDS “if we think we need him” to allow the Rangers to use a three-man rotation, but yesterday the manager squashed those plans. Rather than start Lee in Game 1 and then in Game 4 on three days’ rest,…

    Cliff Lee struggled again last night, giving up four runs in five innings while falling to 4-6 with a 4.25 ERA in 14 starts for the Rangers, but was able to narrowly avoid being the second player this month to suffer a major injury from a broken bat. In the fourth inning Jack Cust singled…

    Sep 4, 2010, 4:41 PM EST

    UPDATE: According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers called off Cliff Lee’s bullpen session after he felt some discomfort in his back while throwing off flat ground. He’ll play catch again Sunday with the intention of throwing a bullpen session. There’s still a chance he’ll pitch Tuesday, but it doesn’t sound…

    Sep 1, 2010, 6:30 PM EST

Lee has given up 30 runs — 27 earned — over 29 1/3 innings in his last five starts,…

Lee allowed seven runs in 4.2 innings–including three unearned runs due to his own throwing error–and coughed up 10 hits…

    Francisco Liriano held up his end of the bargain in last night’s marquee pitching matchup, taking a shutout into the seventh inning in Texas, but Cliff Lee turned in his third straight ugly start and dropped to 2-5 with a 4.50 ERA in 10 total outings since being traded to the Rangers. Lee continues to…

  13. Cliff Lee says rumored affinity for Yankees is "a lie"

    Aug 24, 2010, 11:38 AM EST

    Take one listen to the Colin Cowherd radio program — “The Herd,” I believe it’s called — and it’s not hard to conceive why people don’t take the guy seriously.  Cowherd is loud and far from level-headed, and on Monday he made a few ridiculous comments regarding Rangers ace Cliff Lee. Lee was shelled for…

  14. Francisco Liriano's "tired arm" pushes him back to Thursday and sets up great matchup with Cliff Lee

    Aug 23, 2010, 10:46 AM EST

    Francisco Liriano was slated to pitch tonight, but instead his start has been pushed back to Thursday because of what manager Ron Gardenhire called “a tired arm.” Liriano has struggled in two of his last three outings after throwing shutout ball for three straight starts, so the Twins will hope that a little extra rest…

  16. Cliff Lee is still ridiculous

    Aug 7, 2010, 11:47 AM EST

    You know, just in case you had any doubts. Cliff Lee earned the 100th victory of his career Friday night, tossing eight innings of one-run ball in a 5-1 win over the Athletics. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA over his first six starts since joining Texas. While that’s pretty impressive on its…

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

    Jul 13, 2010, 10:55 AM EST

    Cliff Lee has been traded four times, including three moves in the past 12 months, so with free agency around the corner he naturally wants to negotiate a no-trade clause into his next contract. I’m going to do everything I can to have that in there. I want to have some control of my life.…

    Jul 10, 2010, 1:52 PM EST

  21. Hey, Cliff Lee is scheduled to start against the Yankees tonight!

    Jul 9, 2010, 9:08 AM EST

    The deal is not done yet, but to my knowledge — and the knowledge of any number of New York people I asked this morning — Joel Sherman has never really whiffed with one of these kinds of reports.  It’s never 100% safe to call a deal done before it actually is, but the odds…

  22. What getting Cliff Lee means to the Yankees

    Jul 9, 2010, 8:45 AM EST

    No, it does not mean that the Yankees have “bought” themselves another title. And that’s true even if they win yet another title.

  23. Your latest addition to the Cliff Lee Derby: the White Sox

    Jul 8, 2010, 6:15 PM EST

    Larry Stone of the Seattle Times “hears rumblings” that the White Sox are “kicking the tires” on Cliff Lee.  Setting aside the fact that it’s only July 8th and the “kicking the tires” metaphor is already played out, this is an interesting one to think about.  Jake Peavy is done for the year, so there’s…

    Jul 8, 2010, 12:20 AM EST

    Industry sources told MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan that trade talks between the Rangers and Mariners regarding left-hander Cliff Lee “appear to be heating up.” Sullivan, however, goes right on to say that nothing is imminent. The Rangers are in a difficult position when it comes to making trades. With bankruptcy proceedings ongoing and ownership still up…
