Pride And How To Get It

Cliff Lee sort of called out his teammates after last night's shutout loss in Cleveland.  I said "sort of" because he used the royal "we" in saying the Phils should have "a little more pride".

Well, Cliff, the problem isn't pride.  It's just that the Phillies aren't very good including the once-proud pitching staff.

The way to have "a little more pride" is to play better and, frankly, that doesn't look likely. So, maybe the Phils need to acknowledge they have a lot of deficiencies before they go looking for more pride.

Just a thought, Cliff.  Run that by the boys in the clubhouse and see how they respond.
