For whatever reason, Cliff Lee was in no mood to mess around on Tuesday night at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The All-Star Game pregame introductions are usually a chance for players to get their recognition from the fans in attendance and be introduced to fans across the world watching from home. One would think that might be a pretty joyous occasion for most players. Apparently Lee is the exception. That’s what it looked like Tuesday night in New York, as Lee emitted no emotions let alone joy as he was introduced to the fans in attendance. Granted, Lee was booed as a member of the rival Phillies, but he’s probably used to that by now. Even so, players usually don’t take hostile receptions very personally. Perhaps Lee’s reaction was some sort of inside joke. Either way, it’s pretty frightening. Check it out in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes.

Cliff Lee not impressed with All Star Game introduction

While Cliff Lee was being introduced in front of the Citi Field crowd before the 2013 All Star Game, Lee unleashed this death stare towards the camera. Lighten up, dude.

Phillies First Half Grades: Starting Pitchers get passing grades

One of the strengths of the 2013 Philadelphia Phillies was supposed to be the quality starting pitching. With Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels at the front of the rotation, that much should go without saying. Kyle Kendrick and free-agent pick-up John Lannan provided the Phillies with a decent enough back-end of the rotation as well. Of course, two starting pitchers would land...

Phils Need Epic Second Half to Make Playoffs

After the All-Star festivities end tonight, Cliff Lee, Domonic Brown and the rest of the Phils have plenty of work to do.  (AP Photo) As I opined last week, gauging where you stand on the Phillies can hinge on what day you check in on this ambivalent bunch.  Nowhere is it more visible than within the Philadelphia media, where readers are bombarded with recurring “buy” and “sell”...

Phillies rumors: Philadelphia reluctant to sell

The Philadelphia entered the All-Star break at an even .500 on the season. It seems fitting considering the team appears to be on the fence between buying and selling this summer. While at one point it appeared the Phillies could sell with an eye toward the future, it now appears the team will be reluctant to deal veterans at the deadline based on comments made by general partner...

Chase Utley wants to and should end career with the Phillies

With the Philadelphia Phillies at the .500 mark at the All-Star break, there has been much talk as to whether the Phillies should buy, sell or a combination of both before the July 31 trade deadline.  One player often named in trade rumors is second baseman Chase Utley.  Phillies' general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has recently stated that he pictures Utley as a "Phillie...

When will the Phillies host the All-Star Game? Maybe in 2019 at the earliest

Tonight the New York Mets will host their first All-Star Game since 1964 in Shea Stadium. That game has a rather special Phillies moment of course, which leaves me wondering if Domonic Brown or Cliff Lee might play a part in another bankable moment in franchise history. It's hard for me to believe the Mets have only hosted the All Star Game once before this season, while the...

Phillies Nation TV: 3 Keys to the Second Half and Parking Lot Challenge Returns

On this week’s episode, Pat and Corey discuss trade options for the bullpen and centerfield, preview the second half schedule and give their 3 keys to making it a successful one. Ryann has reader questions including one asking, “How many wins do Phillies need to make the playoffs?” Plus, Johnny Goodtimes returns for another edition of Parking Lot Challenge. Watching things...

Ben Revere got screwed, hopes to return in 6-8 weeks

Phillies center fielder Ben Revere has undergone surgery to repair his right foot, which he broke in the first game of the double header on Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. Revere's surgery involved getting two screws placed in his foot according to Todd Zolecki: Ben Revere's surgery complete. Dr. Steve Raikin placed 2 screws across the fracture. Tentative...

Mid-Season Report Card

The Phillies are the definition of average, having played .500 ball over the first half of the season. Yes, I know technically the season is past the mid-point, but the All-Star break serves as an easy divider, so don't go getting all numerically uppity on me. Important baseball awaits the Phils in the second half, with Amaro planting his feet on the side of the "we are...

Phillies First Half Grades: Starting infielders defining mediocrity

I am not really sure what to make of the Phillies starting infield this season, other than the fact that it is aging and breaking down frequently enough that an argument to shake things up and get younger now is completely valid if the right pieces are available. I have already spoken my mind on how to address the Ryan Howard situation. As much as I respect what Jimmy Rollins and...

PNTV Interview: Mickey Morandini at the Celebrity Hitting Challenge

Recently, Phillies Nation TV headed out to the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star events in Lakewood, NJ to attend the Celebrity Hitting Challenge that was hosted at FirstEnergy Park by the BlueClaws. The “Clawstar Spectacular”, as it was called, featured the likes of former players Matt Stairs and Dwight Gooden along with comedian Artie Lange, who were all featured in interviews...

Phillies Should Pursue Juan Pierre

Some Philadelphia Phillies fans thought that the team should have kept outfielder Juan Pierre. With Ben Revere out 6-8 weeks after surgery on his foot, bringing Pierre back makes sense. Pierre can be acquired on the cheap, can leadoff and set the table for the Phillies, and will give the team a great fourth outfielder when Revere returns. The 35 year old left hander is only hitting...

If the Phillies buy, several relievers stand out as possible targets

As the trade deadline approaches, the Phillies find themselves in need of one of the hardest positions to shop for. Relief pitchers are a dime a dozen, but solid, dependable relievers are hard to come by, and almost every team in the race is looking to improve the bullpen. The addition of the second wild card makes it tough too, as there are quite a few teams that find themselves...

2013 ERA for the NL East at Philadelphia Phillies’ Game 96

Most staffs typically have a significant drop-off after their one and two, but the Philadelphia Phillies with John Lannan have a solid five. How do other divisional teams fare on the bottom rung of their rotations? TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the other divisional staffs periodically. The completed number of games...

Phils' Revere to miss 6-to-8 weeks

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday for a broken right foot.The...
