After last night’s debacle, it all falls on the reliable arm of Cliff Lee to stop the bleeding. Lee will do his best to give the bullpen a break, one that comes into tonight’s game with an ERA of 6.04, 24th in baseball. Their starting pitchers ERA is an MLB worst 7.68.
The good news, Lee is 4-1 with a 2.09 ERA in eight career starts, striking out 56 in 56 innings. The Phillies could use the spark of yet another shutdown performance. And the fans can’t stomach another terrible outing.
On the other end, Dillon Gee has been rocked by the Phillies in six career starts. He’s 3-3 with a 6.46 ERA.
Both Charlie Manuel and Ruben Amaro addressed Roy Halladay and said they will give him as long a leash as he needs to correct himself. They’re showing confidence in their struggling former-ace, as the...

Cliff Lee has improved his record to 2-0 beating the N.Y. Mets at the Bank. But more importantly has stopped the Phillies losing ways for a second time. With Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay not getting past the fifth inning in both their starts, Lee is clearly their staff ace. Lee had a solid outing, pitching 8 2/3 innings, striking out 6 and walking none. Adams struck out the...
Cliff Lee is one out short of pitching a complete game as the Phils’ bats wake up to rout the Mets, winning 8-3.
The Phils take the lead in the bottom of the second as, with runners on second and third, and with one man out, John Mayberry Jr. hits a two-run double, knocking in Michael Young, who had earlier singled, then stopped at third base on Dom Brown’s single, and Brown...
Cliff Lee is well ahead of his 2012 pace in terms of wins. On Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park Lee earned his second win of the season in as many starts. Last season it took Lee until July 31 to pick up his second win of the year. Lee was in command from start to finish on the mound and nearly went the distance and Ryan Howard, Michael Young and John Mayberry all hit home runs...
Wow, Cliff Lee really took an ass kicking.

Final: Mets 3, Phillies 8.
WP: Cliff Lee (2-0, 1.08 ERA) LP: Dillon Gee (0-2, 7.71 ERA)
Cliff Lee didn't disappoint yet again this evening. He lasted eight and two-thirds innings, allowing just three runs, two of them earned, on eight hits. He walked none, and struck out a total of six batters. He now has two of the three total wins thus far in 2013 for the Phillies.
While Cliff Lee is pitching like a man at the peak of his career, Roy Halladay seems to be in a free fall. With an 8-3 pounding of the Mets last night, Lee has started the season off with a 2-0 record. Halladay, on the other hand, has begun with 2 awful losses.
Even the offense seemed pumped to perform for Lee. The Phillies even hit 3 home runs in 1 inning to support their ace on...
The Phillies whooped some Mets a** last night. With Cliff Lee on the mound and a wholloping set of home runs, the Phillies were able to even this three-game series at one-a-piece. Cliff Lee was spectacular once again last night. Nearly going the distance, but falling short at 8 2/3...
Michael Young and Ryan Howard homered, Cliff Lee came within one out of a complete game and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 8-3 on Tuesday night.
John Mayberry Jr. also went deep for Philadelphia and Young had three hits, missing the cycle by a double.
Lee (2-0) allowed three runs - two earned - and eight hits, striking out six in 8 2-3 innings. The 2008 AL Cy...
Monday was a very good day here for the Game Picks. The only two incorrect picks were (of course) the Cardinals, a team that blew a save in just about the most spectacular fashion you could imagine. Between Mitchell Boggs and Scrabble, the Cardinals allowed nine runs in the ninth inning. Nine. Amazing. The other incorrect pick was picking the Cubs to beat the Brewers. This game...
The night Dillon Gee had in Philadelphia happens to all pitchers. It happened to Stephen Strasburg the other day. It will happen to Matt Harvey. It is premature to worry about Gee two starts into the season. It was not a game worthy of capital punishment.
It was a file-and-forget game.
“There’s not a whole lot to say. A terrible night,’’ Gee told reporters. “But you’ve...
