Keys to the Game:
  1. You gotta swing: With a SO/BB ratio of 4.21, Cliff Lee is a major strike thrower. If you go up there taking pitches, your going to fall behind, badly.
  2. Early indicator: After first pitch strikes, opposing batters are hitting just .248 off Lee. When he throws a first pitch ball, they are hitting .316. That should give you an early indication of how effective Lee will be tonight.
  3. Get the leadoff man on: Lee is a great pitcher, and your not going to get a lot of opportunities. When leading off an inning, batters are hitting .320 off Lee. That will be one of your only chances to get something started, so take advantage.
  4. Start it up early: With no outs, opposing hitters are batting .307 off Lee. Again, your not going to get many chances, so take advantage.
  5. Pray: This guys pretty good.
