Phillies @ Dodgers, April 22, 2014: At Least It’s Not Cliff Lee

Say what you will about A.J. Burnett, who starts tonight for Philadelphia — and he’s had a long, outstanding career — but at least he’s not Cliff Lee, who made the Dodgers look foolish last night and pointed out, once again, why he’s one of the absolute best in the game. Burnett has been battling a hernia, which is partially responsible for the fact that he’s walked...

Cliff Lee remains awesome

Last night, Cliff Lee dominated the Dodgers, throwing eight shutout innings, while striking out 10 batters without walking anyone. In other words, it was just your normal Cliff Lee start. For the season, Lee now has 38 strikeouts against two walks; this is just what he does. But just because we’re used to Cliff Lee’s […]

Watching Cliff Lee is a emotional experience

Sara McGuire was a big Phillies fan, and Cliff Lee was probably her favorite Phillies player if I had to guess. Monday night’s game in Los Angeles is one I know my grandmother would have fallen asleep too early in the game, but it was one I know she would have enjoyed immensely if she got the chance to watch it. Lee was given a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning as the four-game...

Lee dazzles, Ruiz rewards Sandberg in Phils' win

Ryne Sandberg has displayed a little managerial wizardry, a little Ryno Magic, the last couple of days. On Sunday, he used John Mayberry Jr. as a late-game defensive replacement for hard-handed first baseman Ryan Howard. The move proved auspicious when Mayberry dug a ball out of the dirt to preserve a one-run victory in Denver. Monday night, Sandberg mixed up a lineup potion that...

Phillies Ride Lee, Homers to 7-0 Victory over Dodgers

The Phillies opened up their series with the Dodgers Monday night with a 7-0 win behind the strong left arm of Cliff Lee, and some much needed run support in the form of a couple of longballs from the heart of the order. Choooooooooooch So much for Carlos Ruiz not having a home run or an RBI this year. Ryne Sandberg moved him up to the cleanup spot Monday night, despite his .204...

Phillies 7, Dodgers 0: Future Dodger Cliff Lee Is The Best

I present to you a GIF: If, because of the quality, you can’t tell what Paul Maholm is saying, he was pretty clearly saying “just throw the effin’ ball over there” to himself after his fifth inning throwing error went over the head of Adrian Gonzalez and allowed the fifth Philadelphia run to score, but he really could have been talking about any of the 107 pitches he threw...

Philadelphia Phillies: Opening day observations

The Philadelphia Phillies started off the season on the right foot in a crazy 14-10 victory over the Texas Rangers.  It looked as though the game would be decided early, when the Phillies jumped out to a six run lead at the top of the second inning.  However, Cliff Lee struggled, giving the lead back before the offense fired back.  Here are some observations about the Phillies...

A rift in the Philadelphia Phillies’ front office?

Despite trade rumors, Rollins is his regular upbeat self. On Wednesday morning after batting practice Jimmy Rollins was his typical self, relaxed and not irritated.  An report that officials in the Philadelphia Phillies want him to step-up or be traded did not phase Rollins for one reason.  “They can’t trade me, it doesn’t matter”, said the shortstop on before...
