That’s 100% Cliff Lee out there, in case there was ever any doubt.

Those complete games? Double digit strike outs? Clean ratios? Unnatural, complete lack of blinking? That’s all the stuff you get when you’re Cliff Lee. Comes with the packaging. No extra hidden fees. In fact, in some cases, he’ll take less money to bring it to you.
Cliff, it seems, is not in favor of liking or remaining silent on drugs in baseball. He sees your biogenesis report and he’s happy the names on it are being punished. Cliff recently described baseball’s crusade on performance enhancing drugs as no longer a “lingering issue,” claiming baseball does a great job of making sure guys get caught.
"“To me, it’s a good thing. I hope anyone that does steroids or anything like that, and they’re cheating the game, I hope they get caught and I hope they get suspended. That’s the way it should be.”–Cliff Lee"
Cliff knows the score. While the topic is “discussed” “by” MLB’s top executives, Cliff sees it as an open and shut case. In fact, it’s already shut. So just shut up about it and let’s place some ball. Right? God.
This All-Star break is taking forever.
