Cliff Lee is the AL Comeback Player of the YearThe Comeback Is Complete!
Today, Cliff Lee was named American League Comeback Player of the year.
Lee got the award in the AL and Phillies' closer Brad Lidge won the award in the National League.
This figures to be the first award Cliff Lee will receive this off-season and rightfully so. The bigger prize will be the Cy Young Award.
Let's talk about how important this one is though.
Cliff was in BUFFALO last year, BUFFALO! We didn't even think he could be called down to Buffalo.
Cliff didn't take it personal, but he didn't like it and he did something about it.
Is there any other person you could pick for this award? From injuries to struggles, to Cy Young contender?
Let's take a look..
17 More Wins
ERA lowered by 3.75
104 More Strikeouts
2 Less Walks in 126 MORE Innings!
"I absolutely have no desire to go and pitch in Buffalo ever again," Lee said. "I do have another [Minor League] option left, but ... it's not something I'm considering in my mind."
Let it ring true Cliffad, Let It Ring True!
Congrats Cliff Lee
For Being Named 2008 American League
Comeback Player of the Year!
