Cliff Lee: “Lee will turn 35 in the third year of whatever contract he signs. Just eight different pitchers this decade have posted strikeout-to-walk ratios of better than 4.0 at the age of 35 or older — including Curt Schilling with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2006. Only 10 times in the last 10 years has a pitcher posted a K/BB ratio better than 5.0 after turning 35 … If Lee can sustain his strikeout-to-walk ratio into the late 30s the way Schilling did, he’ll probably be worth the money he’s paid. If he does not — and most pitchers don’t, with the injury-plagued Saberhagen just one example — a big investment in his services has a chance to backfire.” [Providence Journal]

This may not be a bad move…
Dikembe Mutombo also made an appearance.
A better kind of notable.
Slow down, big man.

Probably just a coincidence.
RIP the 80s wrestling villain.
