How good was Cliff Lee's 2008 season?

Jayson Stark on ESPN.com is reporting that the Phillies might be trying to trade for him instead of Roy Halladay. The asking price might be a little lower on Cliff Lee than Roy Halladay. His 2008 season was historic:

Cliff Lee's masterful 2008 season:
22-3, 2.54 ERA, 223 IP, 170 SO, 34 BB, .880 W-L %

.880 W-L % (6th best since 1941)

Roy Face: Pirates 18-1 (1959)
Greg Maddux: Braves 19-2 (1995 )
Randy Johnson: Martiners 18-2 (1995)
Ron Guidry: Yankees 25-3 (1978)
Bob Stanley: Red Sox 15-2 (1978)
Cliff Lee: Indians 22-3 (2008)
Seasons with 22 wins, .700 W-L% and a sub-2.75 ERA since 1990:

Pedro Martinez (Red Sox) 1999
Randy Johnson (Diamondbacks) 2002
Cliff Lee (Indians) 2008

In 2009, Cliff Lee is 7-9 with a 3.14 ERA (3-0, 1.44 ERA in last 3 starts). He's still 29-12 with a 2.78 ERA since the beginning of 2008.
