    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…

    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.

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

    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.…

  10. Cliff Lee shuts down the Giants

    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…

    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…

    Cliff Lee phillies throwing

    Cliff Lee was brilliant against the Nationals last night, hurling a complete-game shutout while allowing just three hits and one walk. He also struck out 12 and needed only 99 pitches to record 27 outs, becoming the first pitcher since Chris Carpenter in 2009 to throw a complete-game shutout with double-digit strikeouts while using fewer…

  16. Great Moments in Cliff Lee Love

    Cliff Lee phillies throwing

    Apparently ladies love cool Cliff: Cliff Lee love isn’t about box scores, ERAs, or innings pitched. You won’t understand it by dissecting interview transcripts, psychoanalyzing his heart, or rereading the fine print of the leaner contract he signed with Philadelphia at the expense of a fatter paycheck dangled by the Yankees. It is about animal…

  18. Brian Cashman disagrees with Cliff Lee saying the Yankees “are getting older”

    Mar 16, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Brian Cashman

    Last week during a radio interview Cliff Lee said that he chose Philadelphia over New York in part because “it seems like some of the Yankee guys are getting older.” First of all, technically “some of the Yankee guys are getting older” is a statement of fact. We’re all “getting older” (with the notable exceptions…

    Cliff Lee was on WIP in Philly with my buddy Angelo Cataldi yesterday. You can listen to all of it here. This exchange, the transcript of which comes courtesy of Sports Radio Interviews, was fun: Who finished second to the Phillies in his mind: “Texas probably finished second to be honest with you. Just as…

    Someone else tell me if this is bizarre: On Sunday, a story appears on Philly.com — Internet home of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News — reporting that Cliff Lee has a muscle strain; In the next 12 hours, the Internet picks up the story, people start blogging about it, tweeting about it,…

  22. Did the Rangers push Cliff Lee to Philly?

    Chuck Greenberg

    Chuck Greenberg would like to be credited with an assist on the Cliff Lee-to-Philly deal: Even though Philadelphia was probably not in, they were always in the back of our mind,” Greenberg said. “I think if we wouldn’t have gone to Arkansas that last time, I think he was going to sign with the Yankees.…

    I’m with the Associated Press’ Tim Dahlberg to the extent he’s critical of those who are lauding Cliff Lee for making some sort of financial sacrifice to go to the Phillies. Sure, there’s a bit less guaranteed money, but we’re not in sainthood territory here. Dahlberg completely loses me, however, when he goes off on…

    Cliff Lee phillies throwing

    There has been some debate about just how much one can characterize Cliff Lee’s deal with the Phillies as one in which he “left money on the table.”  On the one hand, there is the potential there for him to make more money with Philly than he made in New York. On the other hand,…

  25. Cliff Lee and the media

    Cliff Lee phillies throwing

    Bob Raissman writes about how really no one in baseball media got the Cliff Lee story right. Fair enough. I can’t remember the last time everyone was this fooled about a big signing. But I think Raissman is a bit unfair with this passage: In fact, none of the legion of ESPN’s highly promoted, self-decorated…
