If you agree with the statement made in the title, you are excused from reading the remainder of this post. This post really shouldn't even be necessary, just like posts themed "Wilson Valdez Is Not Good. At All.", or "Offering Kyle Kendrick Arbitration: Not What You Would Call "Smart" should not have been needed. Alas, the majority of those inhabiting the Phillies' Twitterverse and Blogosphere do not currently appear to be on the correct page, especially when it comes to the 2012 Phillies' top starting pitcher. Let's look at a few of the false Lee narratives that are pervading the internets:
"Lee has ZERO WINS, he sucks, what's more important than wins? Nothing!"
It's 2012. Don't we know better than to care about "pitcher wins" by now? Not yet, apparently. The problem with the "pitcher wins" stat is that it collects piles of factors outside of a pitcher's contro...
BEST OF MAXIM
With the Phillies currently in last place in the NL East, their fans are getting a tad bit nervous as we enter July. The major target of their frustrations is $20 million man Cliff Lee, who is still without a win this season in his 13 starts. Because of his lack of wins, and an ERA that is currently above 4.00, some fans are jumping all over the thought that something must be wrong...
Trade Cliff Lee from the Philadelphia Phillies and you accomplish what? Didn’t Rube Amaro do that before?

The Phillies are 10 games under .500 for the first time since June of 2002. Damn. There's not much to say besides the Phillies need a freaking miracle to head to the postseason, but if they keep playing this way they may just have to give up and become sellers. After being destroyed by the Mets last night, the Phillies will look to snap their six-game losing streak with Cliff...
