SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cliff Lee marvels at Tim Lincecum's motion. So much torque, so much power. So darn unusual.
"The way he does it, no one else does it that way. I like that," Lee said Tuesday, a day before the Texas Rangers ace pitches against the San Francisco Giants star in Game 1 of the World Series.
"I like when unorthodox works and it works to that kind of an extent, back-to-back Cy Young winner. He throws in a way that you probably wouldn't want to show your kid how to throw," Lee said. "He definitely is doing something right. He's different."
There's something unique about Lee, too: He never loses in the biggest games. The lefty is 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight lifetime postseason starts.
"Cliff Lee, superhero," summed up Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval.
Watch Lee from the center-field camera and it's difficult to tell exactly what makes him so special.
David Price brings more heat. Andy Pettitte brought more October experience. But Lee beat them both in the playoffs.
Maybe it's the way he throws any of his pitches for strikes on any count. At any speed, too. A real-life version of a video game — try to duplicate that in "Major League Baseball 2K10."
