Default Goodbye Cliff Lee

Just watched Cliff leave the game against the Nationals. From what I saw, seems his elbow gave out on him.

At 35 and with the possibility of Tommy John, I think it's time to say goodbye to a great pitcher!

Very sad that he could not stay healthy. He had some dominant portions of his career.

Title is very misleading, Find out what's wrong with him first.

If it is true...Would this be the baseball gods officially cursing the Phillies due to Mr. Amaro Jr's inept ability to make a trade? Oh cruel and evil they can be!

Was it last year that the rangers I think, claimed him off waivers in August, could of got rid of that contract or/and gotten some players, too bad

He could have been, but the trade deadline was about 4 hours ago.

If he'd been traded.. He wouldn't have even been pitching.

That was my point...

Same injury that he had in May. He is probably done for 2014. Sad Trombone for the Phillies.

Many boneheaded moves made today/the past few days by GMs and front offices.
