Rank 'Em: Baseball's best pitchers

Where does Cliff Lee rank?

Cliff Lee is reportedly on the move as baseball's trade deadline nears, heading from the Indians to the Phillies in exchange for prospects. But if the Phillies add Lee, are they adding one of baseball's five best pitchers or someone on the fringes of the top 20?

Lee is the reigning AL Cy Young winner, but he's under .500 this season (although with a 3.14 ERA, run support and defense may have a lot to do with his 7-9 record). Lee obviously isn't a Cy Young candidate this season, but from usual mainstays like Jake Peavy currently struggling with injuries to fresh faces coming into their own like Matt Cain, where does he rank when it comes to who you want to hand the ball to?
