Cliff Lee capped off another month in which he put up ridiculous numbers, finishing the month of August with a 5-0 record and a 0.45 ERA. Put those numbers alongside his dazzling June and Clifton Phifer joins only two other pitchers in the history of the game to have two months in one season with a 5+ wins and no losses record and an ERA under 1.00. Those guys? You may have heard of them. Walter Johnson and Bob Gibson.
Cliff’s response when told about his latest bi-monthly achievement? From Jim Salisbury’s game story, which has much, much more on Lee’s brilliance.
“I hope I have a good September and October, too.” [video below]
It’s not often you see Ricky Bo gush about how great a guy is, so we thought we’d throw in this video for giggles.
