    From MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince on Twitter: Tidbit from #Phillies camp today: Somebody mailed Cliff Lee their fingernail clippings. The perks of celebrity. #FanNail — Anthony Castrovince (@castrovince) February 23, 2014 I’m not sure my reaction to this has an official onomatopoeia. Follow @CrashburnAlley

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    If someone — anyone — has a clue what the Phillies’ grand plan is, I’d love to hear it. I’m sure anyone would: The Phillies have indicated to other teams they are ready and willing to talk about Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels in trades. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 10, 2013 I suppose that…

    Phillies' Lee reacts during Game 2 of their MLB National League Divisional Series baseball playoffs against the Cardinals in Philadelphia

    Phillies starter Cliff Lee was the tough-luck loser last night against the Braves. The lefty allowed just one run — an eighth-inning Chris Johnson solo home run — in eight innings while striking out 13 and walking none. It was part of an historically-great month of September and an overall productive season in Phillies red…

  15. Cliff Lee has had a September to remember

    Sep 27, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Phillies starter Cliff Lee shut out the Braves through seven innings tonight, but an equally-dominating performance by Braves starter Kris Medlen and an eighth-inning solo home run by Chris Johnson left him the tough-luck loser. Lee struck out 13, walked none, and allowed just three hits over eight innings, but the Phillies’ offense just couldn’t…

  16. Cliff Lee does it all in win over Marlins

    Sep 16, 2013, 11:14 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee Getty

    Cliff Lee was a one-man gang in tonight’s 12-2 victory over the Marlins. In addition to allowing two runs over eight innings while striking out 14 batters, he went 3-for-4 and drove in a career-high four runs. My goodness. I’m not sure it’s possible to dominate a team more thoroughly than that. As for his…

  17. Keeping Cliff Lee is the wrong choice for Phillies

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Trends don’t get much more clear than this: 2008: Won World Series 2009: Lost World Series 2010: Lost NLCS 2011: Lost NLDS 2012: Missed playoffs Now, that’s not entirely fair: the Phillies had their best records in that span in 2011 and 2010. But Charlie Manuel’s team has dropped off severely since then. In 2012,…

  18. The Phillies won’t be trading Cliff Lee

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    It seemed pretty obvious that the potential suitor with the most to send back to Philly in exchange for Cliff Lee was the Red Sox, and now that they’re no longer in need of a starting pitcher, Ruben Amaro is no longer looking to deal his ace: Cliff Lee is not getting traded today according…

  19. No, the Red Sox aren’t trading Xander Bogaerts for Cliff Lee

    Jul 30, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    Xander Bogaerts

    Cliff Lee is pretty terrific. He’s currently 10-4 with a 3.05 ERA. He’s on pace for a sixth straight season of 200 innings pitched, and his worst ERA in that span is a 3.22 mark. Since 2008, he has the second best ERA+ or anyone to throw 500 innings, coming in a bit behind Clayton…

  20. The Phillies want Xander Bogaerts from the Red Sox in a Cliff Lee deal

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    cliff lee wide getty

    I remain skeptical that the Phillies will actually trade Cliff Lee, but it could happen. If it does, it’s gonna take a lot. One report from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is that it will take top infield prospect Xander Bogaerts: From every indication Phillies won’t settle for anything less than Bogaerts at the head…

  21. The Phillies want a lot for Herschel Walker Cliff Lee

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    Jon Heyman reports that Ruben Amaro is telling other GMs that it will take their “three or four best prospects” to land Cliff Lee “plus you’d have to take all the money.” That’s an insane price, of course. No one trades the top four of their prospect list for a guy owed between $50-75 million (depending…

    Jul 26, 2013, 7:58 PM EDT

But that specific situation just got a bit complicated. According to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lee has been scratched from his…

  23. Clayton Kershaw, Cliff Lee on pace for historically-great seasons

    Jun 29, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    In a piece posted last night, ESPN’s Christina Kahrl notes that lefties Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and Cliff Lee of the Phillies are on pace for historically-great seasons, using Wins Above Replacement from Baseball Reference: 3. Just one pitcher in 10 years has produced a season worth 9.0 WAR or better And that would be…

  24. Ruben Amaro has no plans to trade Cliff Lee or Jonathan Papelbon

    Jun 14, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Philadelphia Phillies

    Cliff Lee‘s postgame interview last night is being spun by some as him wanting out of Philly, but even if that were the case, Ruben Amaro does not sound at all inclined to do it. Talking to Jayson Stark of ESPN, Amaro makes it clear — for the second time this week — that he…

  25. Cliff Lee wants to win. But does he want to stay in Philly?

    Jun 14, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee pitched great again yesterday and people are starting to speculate about whether the Phillies will shop him before the trade deadline. For his part, Lee says he wants to win. From Jim Salisbury at CSNPhilly.com: Q: With the current makeup of this team, do you think it can be a playoff team? A:…
