Where does Cliff Lee rank?

Who are the greatest postseason pitchers of all time?

A little more than 12 months ago, Cliff Lee was a novice when it came to pitching in the playoffs. Now he's arguably the most dominant starter in postseason history. Lee shut out the Yankees for eight innings in Game 3 of the ALCS, improving to 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA, 67 strikeouts and just seven walks in eight career postseason starts for the Rangers and Phillies.

But where does Lee rank all time? Does his success rate ahead of Andy Pettitte, the all-time leader in postseason wins, or Jack Morris, the hero of Game 7 in the 1991 World Series? Rank some of October's greatest pitchers below.
