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

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 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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com on Friday afternoon that he is open to trade offers for a range of Phillies players, including left-handed starter Cliff Lee. But that specific situation just got a bit complicated. According to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lee has been scratched from his…

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…

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…

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:…

Cliff Lee, though understated, is a character. He famously shrugged off making an important catch in the first game of the 2009 World Series. He never looks more excited than when he’s in the batter’s box and subsequently able to run the bases. You can add retrieving food from the stands to the list. While…
