Can't wait for Cliff Lee to pitch game 1 tonight!

Cliff Lee is almost as hard to know as he is to hit.

It's not that he's aloof. It's not that he's mercurial. It's not that he's fickle.

It's just that Lee, who takes the ball for the Rangers against the Giants in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night at AT&T Park (6:30 p.m. CT on FOX, Postseason.TV), is so focused, so unaffected and so unassuming that even those who work closest with him rarely get to peel back the layers beyond surface level.
