Bloomberg is Bullish on Phillies Pitching

Even me, lover of all things Cliff Lee (and part-time poet), thinks third-parties are going overboard with rankings like CP Lee at number three. 

Yesterday, we learned that MLB 13: The Show has Lee rated as a 96 in the game, the highest among Phillies. And now, Bloomberg, the company that continues to carve out space in the sports intelligence race, ranks Lee as the third best fantasy pitcher:

No argument that Lee pitched better than his numbers reflected last year. But third? Seems a bit high. 

It's not just Lee getting some love from Bloomberg. The Phillies have three of the top eight pitchers on on Bloomberg's list:

Of course, fantasy and real world are quite different (unless your Paul Holmgren), but decent praise here.

    Those are easily obtainable numbers for Lee. Not even a question.

    Well, it’s nice to know SOMEBODY is bullish about the Phillies.

    Wouldn’t it be 3 of the top 8?

    Those ERA numbers seem high?

    Papelbon looked strong yesterday. Nothing like a 6 run, 2/3rds of an inning performance to say ‘who’s your leader now’.
    Get that out of your system now buddy.

    Good way of explaining, and good piece of writing to obtain data about my presentation focus,

    So, it is necessary that you plan your shoe budget
    before buying one. It compares the design of vintage motorcycles to today’s
    models. A new kind of wire mixed with natural fabrics, like cotton, provided
    the perfect adjustment to the body.

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Do squats and dead lifts to boost the thighs, the
    critical muscle make use off to plunge. Somme would argue these
    worldly improvements are a part off life. Just before halftime, Gatens got a
    teal with 3.4 seconds to play.
