Cliff Lee doesn’t need to show what he has got for anyone and If the Mariners don’t trade him for a fist full of prospects they are stupid. Lee knows how to pitch and he showed that today with an impressive 7-4 complete game victory over the Yankees. Until the ninth inning the only offense the Yankees could muster was two HR by a red hot Nick swisher. Then in the ninth when it seemed that Lee was starting to get tired they tacked on a couple more. It started to have the feeling of another brilliant Yankees comeback but then we all remembered who was pitching and knew that it wasn’t meant to be.
Phil Hughes didn’t look so sharp on 10 days Rest. Hopefully he will fall back to his normal self on regular rest the next time around. Unfortunately kids it doesn’t get any easier tomorrow as King Felix takes the mound. Although he has not been as sharp this year as last year you always know that he can be dominate at any given moment. Javier Vazquez takes the mound against him and he is no slouch of late either. Should be interesting but I give the advantage to the Yankees as the Mariners wont score seven runs two days in a row. Hell they cant even score four runs two days in a row. Back tomorrow with line-ups and pre game gibberish.
