Cliff Lee is expected to be the ace of the Philadelphia Phillies’ pitching staff this year. He is already a fan favorite in Philly, and we know fans in and around that area have a reputation for doing some pretty questionable stuff. There are very few things Phillies fans have done that are more bizarre than mailing a player fingernail clippings.
MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince reported on Sunday that Lee received a special package in the mail recently.

Does that mean he is loved or hated by the sender?
I guess Lee should be thankful no fans have ever thrown batteries at him or hurled any other foreign objects his way, but that is downright creepy. I can honestly say I think I would throw up if I opened up what I thought was fan mail (not that I’d ever get any) and there were fingernail clippings inside. Fame ain’t easy.
