33-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee has been rock solid this year, but he’s not getting much help from the rest of the team. Lee has pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-4 with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He has only given up 79 hits and 17 walks in his first 84 2/3 innings this year with 86 strikeouts, which is pretty darn impressive. He doesn’t have any wins, because the offense isn’t helping him much. Lee has been supported with 6 or more runs only twice so far this year. The Phillies have scored 2 or fewer runs five times so far this year with Lee pitching and they have also scored 3-5 runs five times when Lee was on the mound. Lee has now pitched in 56 games (all starts) in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 24-16 with a 2.88 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Hopefully the Phillies start scoring runs more often for Lee in the near future, because it’s amazing to me that he has yet to win a game this year, despite pitching pretty well.
