Cliff Lee and the number 126

Cliff Lee allowed five fewer earned runs in 2008 despite pitching one hundred and twenty-six more innings. And I spell that out to give you some idea of how big a feat that is. Lee also walked two fewer batters, hit two fewer batters and allowed five fewer home runs. In 126 more innings. 126!

I read that post and all I can think of is a routine from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

"And the number shall be 126. You shall not count to 127 or 128 nor shall you count to 125 unless you them proceedest unto 126."

Happens to me every time I read or hear 'and the number'
