Cliff Lee likes that the last shall be first



Cliff Lee, the former Cy Young winner who has dominated batters this season, striking out 89 while only walking 6, is leaving the Mariners for the Rangers. Yep, he’s heading from the worst team in his division to the best. This wasn’t lost on Lee, who sent this text message to an ESPN reporter:

“Just heard from [Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik],” Lee texted to ESPN The Magazine’s Amy K. Nelson. “It’s official. From last [place] to first.”

That inspired the quite enjoyable Christian reference that can be seen on the ESPN.com homepage.
