Really, is there any question? Come on, this is one night when pitch counts go out the window. Cliff Lee has thrown 122 pitches but you'd have to say he hasn't exactly been laboring. Ron Washington does have Neftali Feliz warming up in the bullpen, but wouldn't the manager be crazy to entrust this game--and possibly a chance to win the series-- in the shaky hands of a kid closer?
This might be Lee's last game as a Ranger. He should have a shot at taking it all the way to the finish.
