Line of the Day: April 14th, 2011

SP Cliff Lee of the Philadelphia Phillies was masterful in a 12-strikeout, three-hit shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Washington Nationals.  He faced just 30 batters, walking one, while throwing just 99 pitches in the game. It was Lee's 21st complete game and sixth shutout of his career.

Line: 9 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 12 K

On average (ADP), Lee would have cost you the 19th pick in an ESPN draft and a 29th pick in a Yahoo! draft. Neither price seems too high for a pitcher that can be as dominant as Lee has shown he can be at times. Sit back and enjoy the ride this season if you invested heavily in the second-best pitcher on the Phillies staff. Let that one absorb a minute or two.
