    Default Cliff Lee to the Rangers

    Bad news for the Angels

    The M's sent Lee and reliever Mark Lowe to Texas for first baseman Justin Smoak and three minor-leaguers.

    The M's also got Beaven, Lawson and Lueke. Great deal for the M's, terrible for the Rangers if they don't do some damage in the postseason, because Lee will be a Yankee in the offseason.

    Texas is definitely giving a lot up for a 2-3 month rental. If they *still* have their typical free-fall during July-August, they're never going to hear the end of it though.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    If the Rangers win the AL West, they will get raped in the postseason by the Yankees or Boston

    They have only been to the playoffs twice, and the Rangers have not won a playoff series once. This year will be the same if they do win the div.

    I don't think it's a bad move by Texas. You have to roll the dice once and awhile and see if something hits. Cliff Lee is a true ace and the man can definitely give Texas a lift when the Ranger late summer slide begins.

    Great debut in Texas, Lee! Giving up 3 home runs and losing to one of the worse teams in baseball 6-1!

    Lee does well today, but over all he has not done with in Texas. I wonder where Lee will end up next season myself.

    The offseason will be very interesting to see what happens that is for sure

    This year with the Rangers:

    Starts: 12
    Wins: 3 (was 2-5 w/Rangers before start against Yankees on Sunday)
    Losses: 5
    ERA: 4.36 (was obviously higher before start against Yankees on Sunday)


    Cliff Lee Sunday (9/12/10) against the Yankees:

    - No hits through 5 1/3 innings
    - Retired 15 straight before giving up a single to Nunez.
    - 8 innings pitched
    - 2 hits
    - 5 strike outs
    - 1 earned run
    - Against the YANKEES.


    Read this, makes sense:
