Cliff Lee was roughed up a bit in his return from the 60-day disabled list on Monday night. He allowed 12 hits and six earned runs in 5-plus innings of work in the Philadelphia Phillies’ loss to the San Francisco Giants. Some would say he crapped his pants, but in reality Lee only laid down a well-tuned fart.
No, seriously. After he was done answering questions from reporters after the game, Lee squeezed out what Andy Martino of the NY Daily News has termed an “emphatic fart.” The 700 Level also wrote a hilarious post about Lee passing gas, which is definitely worth a read.
As soon as reporters were done asking questions, Lee looked around suspiciously before crop-dusting the Phillies locker room.
Some would say it was a perfect summary of how the season has gone in Philadelphia.
