    Cliff Lee's popularity is reaching epic proportions prior to Game 1 of the World Series, and Rangers fans can rejoice he's on our team!

    Lee's repertoire of pitches (cut fastball, four-seam fastball, two-seam fast ball, circle changeup and knuckle curve ball) have made him a legend.

    Lee's legendary status has made him the subject of Internet lore, so move over Chuck Norris and The Most Interesting Man, you've got company.

    From the, blog of Cliff Lee Facts,  to the hashtag Twitter feed #cliffleefacts come some real gems:
