If there's one fact in life, it's this: Come postseason time, do not mess with Cliff Lee. Just ask Yankees fans. The Rangers pitcher threw an insane 13-strikeout, two-hit gem on Monday night to give the Rangers a 2-1 series lead in the American League Championship Series. So really, it was a matter of which nine players to select under No. 1 Cliff Lee.

With a performance that outshined Roy Halladay, the panel went with Tim Lincecum at No. 2, home run master Cody Ross at No. 3, Heisman front-runner Cameron Newton at No. 4 and Rangers spark plug Josh Hamilton at No. 5
