Cliff Lee is Good

On his first start as a Seattle Mariner, Cliff Lee exceeded expectations, throwing seven shutout innings, allowing just three base runners, and striking out eight.

As mentioned in my previous post, I sat Lee, concerned that the Texas Rangers bats may get to him and Colby Lewis would be tough against the M's hitters. Well, I was wrong and right.

Lee did not get the win, as predicted, but his peripherals were better than I'd anticipated. Much better.

It's obviously a very small sample-size, but his sparkling Safeco Field debut may be a preview of what expect from Lee this season.
