ANTICRIMEDOGGUY: But he never won the MVP and he wasn't THAT great for very long.
In all fairness, McGriff was penciled in as the AL MVP in 1989 until he had a major slump in September that left a bad taste in the voters' collective mouths. After that it turned into Robin Yount winning by default over McGriff and the then-underpublicized Ruben Sierra.

JoePo also said that Lee was the first guy since my boy Greg Maddux (1995) to have a complete game in the World Series. The kind of performance that breaks the will of the opposing team every time he/she sets foot out on the field.
