Lee named AL starter
Cliff Lee has been named the starting pitcher for the American League All-Star team after a first half that saw him go 12-2 with a 2.31 ERA.
“A lot of pitchers had outstanding first halves,” AL manager Terry Francona said at a press conference this morning. “None have measured up to Cliff. From his very first start to his start three days ago, he’s been the best pitcher in the league.”
Pretty amazing season for Lee, and this just makes it all the more special.
