Playoff Baseball Is Really Different

Says Cliff Lee:

"Not nervous at all," he said, before pausing and adding: "It’s been a long time since I’ve been nervous playing this game. It’s what I’ve been doing my whole life. I put all the work in. You do everything you need to do to prepare, and I try not to leave anything to chance. So what’s the point in being nervous? I’ve already done the work. It’s game time. Time to go out there and have fun and execute and let your skills take over."

Anyone that watched the game would have to agree that, yeah, Lee looked pretty at ease the whole time. This, mind you, was a guy with all of three starts of postseason experience, none in the World Series.

Huh.
