ANAHEIM, Calif. -- In 2007, at the age of 28, Cliff Lee got shipped to the minor leagues by the Cleveland Indians to iron out his delivery. He had to climb the bush-league ladder all over again: He began at Single-A, worked his way up to Double-A and made eight starts at Triple-A.
A season later, Lee won 22 games and captured the American League Cy Young award. He has been one of baseball's most imposing pitchers ever since.
Is there a lesson in here somewhere for Scott Kazmir?
