  1. Cliff Lee earns rare win as Phillies finish sweep of Nationals

    Aug 26, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee bested Jordan Zimmermann on Sunday, pitching seven innings of one-run ball to earn his third win as the Phillies topped the Nationals 4-1. The Phillies held the Nationals to just five runs over three games in pulling off a home sweep to improve to 61-67. It’s the first time they’ve been within six…

  2. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. says Cliff Lee “isn’t going anywhere”

    Aug 4, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee Getty

    Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reported yesterday that the Dodgers were awarded claiming rights on Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee. But that doesn’t mean the southpaw will follow his former teammate Joe Blanton to Los Angeles. According to Paul Hagen of MLB.com, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. wouldn’t confirm or deny Morosi’s report when…

  3. Report: Dodgers claimed Cliff Lee on waivers

    cliff lee getty

    6:20 p.m. EDT Update: FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers were awarded the claim on Lee, but he added that any sort of deal remains unlikely. The Dodgers as the claiming team make a lot of sense. They were expected to put in a big bid for Cole Hamels this winter, a route that…

  4. How about just trading Cliff Lee for Josh Beckett?

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett

    The Phillies want to save some money and still compete next year. The Red Sox want to move on from Josh Beckett and still maybe contend this year. So, Cliff Lee for Beckett? Anyone?

  5. Cliff Lee’s odds of going to Rangers? “Less than 1 percent”

    Jul 30, 2012, 4:48 PM EDT

    File photo of Texas Rangers pitcher Cliff Lee in Arlington

    T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com is pumping the breaks on the Cliff Lee-to-the-Rangers talk, reporting that the odds of Philadelphia trading the left-hander to Texas are “less than one percent.” Sullivan cites an unnamed “industry source” for that assessment, but generally speaking he’s very plugged into the Rangers. This morning rumors started swirling that the Phillies…

  6. Will Cliff Lee claim he was blindsided?

    Jul 30, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    It’s a safe bet that Cliff Lee never guessed the Phillies would be considering dealing him barely a year and a half into a five-year, $120 million contract. Lee picked Philly over competitive offers from the Rangers and Yankees because he wanted to be back in Phildelphia, even though the Phillies had already traded him…

  7. Cliff Lee trade talk heating up; Rangers in play

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:02 PM 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

    The competitive portion of the Phillies season seems to be over, so there has been a lot of chatter about them selling now. That Hunter Pence thing that was shot down is some of it. Joe Blanton is some other stuff. And now the Cliff Lee trade watch is getting into swing: Spoke to exec…

  8. Cole Hamels wants to pitch with Cliff Lee, Cliff Lee could be traded

    Jul 25, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay

    Or: Great Moments in mildly b.s. justifications for accepting a giant contract. First, Jerry Crasnick: For what it’s worth, the lure of pitching with Halladay and Lee was also a factor in Hamels’ decision to re-sign with #phillies — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) July 25, 2012 Then, Jon Paul Morosi: Four general managers of other clubs…

  9. Cliff Lee is finally in the win column

    Jul 4, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    It only took him 14 starts, but Cliff Lee is finally on the board. He pitched eight innings of two-run ball as the Phillies defeated the Mets 9-2 on Wednesday. The Phillies were actually down for much of the game, failing to get on the board until the seventh. Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz hit…

  10. Yep, Cliff Lee is still winless

    Jun 30, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee AP

    Cliff Lee will enter July without a win. At first, this was mostly a ridiculous quick based primarily on a lack of run support, but this isn’t just about the offense anymore. Lee dropped to 0-5 last night by allowing six runs over 4 2/3 innings as part of a 6-2 loss to the Marlins.…

  11. Cliff Lee strikes out 12, loses again

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:08 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee still can’t catch a break. The Phillies left-hander fanned 12 while allowing two runs in 7 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Dodgers, but he still took a loss in a 2-1 game, leaving him 0-3 on the season. Lee has gone nine outings without a win despite a 2.92 ERA. He’s given the…

  12. Things got a little tense between Cliff Lee and Shane Victorino last night

    May 26, 2012, 12:22 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee Shane Victorino AP

    The Phillies defeated the Cardinals 5-3 in 10 innings last night thanks to a go-ahead two-run homer by Hunter Pence. The big takeaway is that the Phillies have won three in a row and now sit one game over .500 (24-23) on the year, but the game featured an interesting moment after Shane Victorino was…

  13. Cliff Lee activated, will start against the Mets tonight

    May 9, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    cliff lee getty

    The Phillies made it official a few minutes ago: Cliff Lee has been activated. To make room for him on the roster they have sent down Michael Schwimer to Lehigh Valley. Lee will be on a pitch count tonight — 80 pitches. So the Philly pen will get another chance to work the magic it has…

  14. Cliff Lee is ready, but Chase Utley is still a ways away

    May 5, 2012, 1:15 PM EDT

    Chase Utley

    Cliff Lee successfully completed a bullpen session Saturday morning and is expected to make his return to the rotation Wednesday after missing three turns with a strained oblique. Unfortunately, the news wasn’t quite so good as it pertained to Chase Utley. Manager Charlie Manuel said Friday that Utley would report to Clearwater early next week,…

  15. Cliff Lee not ready to return from DL when eligible Friday

    Apr 30, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    cliff lee getty

    Cliff Lee is eligible to return from the disabled list Friday, but Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the left-hander’s strained oblique muscle hasn’t healed enough for that to happen. According to Zolecki he’s “improving” but will have to throw at least two bullpen sessions before being cleared to return and the first of those…

  16. Cliff Lee lands on disabled list with left oblique strain

    Apr 21, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    cliff lee getty

    From Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Daily News comes word that the Phillies have placed left-hander Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, because of a left oblique strain. Joe Savery, a left-handed reliever, has been recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Kyle Kendrick will start…

  17. Cliff Lee shuts out the Giants for ten innings, Phillies lose

    Apr 19, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Francisco Giants

    Blast living in the eastern time zone. For, because I went to bed at a reasonable hour, I missed an unreasonably good pitching matchup: Cliff Lee vs. Matt Cain, each of whom shut the other side out for nine innings. Those nine innings took only one hour and fifty-minutes, by the way. The difference: Cliff…

  18. Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels both available in relief tonight

    Oct 7, 2011, 6:32 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay

    The Phillies would prefer that Roy Halladay take care of business tonight against the Cardinals, but he has some pretty good reinforcements if needed. According to David Hale of the Wilmington News Journal, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said this afternoon that both Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels are available in relief for Game 5. Lee…

  19. Cliff Lee is available out of the Phillies’ bullpen tonight

    Oct 5, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee threw 110 pitches Sunday in a Game 2 loss, but manager Charlie Manuel told reporters that the left-hander will be available out of the Phillies’ bullpen in relief of Roy Oswalt tonight. Lee would normally do his between-starts throwing today, so instead he’ll skip that and be ready to pitch an inning or…

  20. Phillies line up playoff rotation with Roy Halladay in Game 1 and Cliff Lee in Game 2

    Sep 28, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Charlie Manuel chose to play coy rather than make an official announcement regarding the Phillies’ playoff rotation, telling reporters: “I think if you’re good baseball people, you should be able to see how we’re setting it up.” And he’s right. Roy Halladay will start Game 1 of the NLDS in Philadelphia on Saturday, followed by…

  21. Cliff Lee hits second homer, denied crack at sixth shutout

    Aug 10, 2011, 1:04 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    The Phillies’ Cliff Lee, already with a major league-leading five shutouts, was denied a shot at No. 6 on Tuesday.  Having thrown 124 pitches, he was removed after eight scoreless innings in what turned out to be a 2-1 win over the Dodgers. Ryan Madson closed it out in the ninth, but not before giving up an RBI single to Casey Blake.…

  22. Cliff Lee shuts down the Giants

    Aug 5, 2011, 9:15 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    It seems like a year ago that the Giants took two of three from the Phillies in Citizens Bank Park, but it was only about a week.  For that matter it seems like ten years ago that the Giants beat the Phillies in the NLCS, but it was less than ten months.  But one thing…

  23. Phillies push back Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee

    Jul 14, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay

    The Phillies have decided to give two of their aces some extra rest after their All-Star appearances and go with Vance Worley, Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick this weekend against the Mets. Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee will be held back until next week’s series against the Cubs that begins Monday. Hamels, the Saturday starter,…

    Jul 3, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee, coming off three straight shutouts versus the Marlins, Cardinals and Red Sox, took the loss Sunday as the Blue Jays beat the Phillies 7-4. Lee had his scoreless streak snapped at 34 innings when Rajai Davis tripled and then scored on a groundout in the third inning of the game.  The Blue Jays…

  25. Cliff Lee delivers third consecutive complete game shutout

    Jun 28, 2011, 10:05 PM EDT

    Phillies starting pitcher Lee delivers a pitch to the Dodgers during the second inning of their National League MLB baseball game in Philadelphia

    Many hyped this week’s interleague series between the Red Sox and Phillies as a potential World Series matchup. And frankly, it’s tough to argue. But tonight was all about Cliff Lee. Lee just finished off his third straight complete game shutout as part of a 5-0 win. He held the Red Sox to just two…
