Today is the day you’re angered by photos from Clearwater taken by reporters who are taking photos in Clearwater just to let you know that they’re in Clearwater, taking photos. It’s that day. Pitchers, catchers and several notables – including Carlos Ruiz, Jimmy Rollins and beautiful Chase Utley – reported for duty, and there was no shortage of annoying Tweets. Among the standouts, however, were these few bits of tid from the Phillies' social media person (who, last year, mistook Juan Pierre for Ryan Howard), John Clark (who is killing it with his Tweets today), and our friend William from St. Pete Beach Photo.

And therein lies the difference between Lee and Roy Halladay. No doubt that Roy has Chooch’s contract details and incentives hanging on a corkboard, likely somewhere just above his inflatable Chooch doll, at his house. But the Cliff Lee don’t care– he’d throw to a brick wall as long as it could handle his looping curve ball. Hey, you still around? Need more Adderall?*

Ruben Amaro brought his smugness to Clearwater, Also, muscles.

*Cliff Lee is one of well over a hundred Major Leaugers who are allowed to take Adderall. Carlos Ruiz, is not.

  1. Hamels and Lee will do what they do. I feel this year hinges on Halladay, and the way he pitches. I don’t think he needs to be dominant, but he needs to be serviceable enough to help not hinder. Oh yeah, and timely hitting, we need a lot of that shit too.

  2. My pantie puddles smell like gin and tonic. Kyle, if you don’t bring me my liniment rub and vodka right away I won’t wash your tightey whitey skid marks anymore.
