CLIFF LEE, starting pitcher: You couldn't make this story up. Underachieving in 2006, injured and frustrated and humbled and nearly cast aside in 2007 ... dominant in 2008. In a season when so much has gone wrong, something has gone very right for this guy.
GRADY SIZEMORE, reserve outfielder: No longer just a coverboy, he now leads the league in home runs, and he's on pace for 38 stolen bases. He dives all over the outfield and basepaths and already owns a Gold Glove. He shows little sign of ever taking himself seriously. And chicks really, really dig him.
NOT APPEARING TONIGHT: Lee Stevens, Brandon Phillips, Bartolo Colon and Tim Drew.
