Cliff Lee Promises To Be "More Chipper"

Jun 26, 2012

"I Know I'm A Drag"

Philadelphia, PA – With rumors of an impending Philadelphia Phillies teammates’ strike, high-priced pitcher Cliff Lee pledged that he will be “more chipper” in the clubhouse and dugout.

“When I can't get a chuckle out of Charlie Manuel," said Lee about the Phillies' ebullient manager, "that's messed up." Lee spoke to reporters after running his record to 6-7 in defeating the Mets 3-1 and running the Phillies' record to 74-74. 

“I know I'm a sourpuss,” added Lee. “I want to get better.”

"I'll tell you what's messed up," said a passing Phillies fan, "a guy with six wins making a million bucks a start and being a jerk."

Lee signed a five-year, $120 million contract with Philadelphia in 2011.
