No. 3: 2011 Cliff Lee
Number three on this list belongs to Cliff Lee in 2011. After being dealt from the Phillies the year prior, Lee resigned with the team in December of 2010.
Lee flashed the dominance he showed in the 2009 postseason, and wound up with a record of 17-8, and an ERA of 2.40. He collected 238 strikeouts good for a K/9 of 9.31, and like Halladay in 2011, would have 25 quality starts in 32 games started.
The most impressive part of Lee’s 2011 season was his scoreless streak. Lee racked up a scoreless inning streak of 34 innings before being stopped by the Blue Jays on July 3rd.
