Cleveland Indians: If you saw Cliff Lee's effort against the Red Sox and Pedro Martinez on Sunday, you saw a pretty good trip to the hill. That outing and a couple of others have the rookie thinking about a spot in the rotation for 2004. Manager Eric Wedge is impressed but guarantees nothing, reports Sheldon Ocker of the Akron Beacon Journal. Lee understands this fully. "A guy like me -- I'm a rookie -- nobody is going to guarantee me anything. I have to come back and prove that I can pitch."
