A week without Cliff Lee is a week without sunshine.

Oh Clifford, Cliff Cliff Cliff Cliffy Cliff.

I won't lie to you, Cliff. I miss you. You're not pitching tonight, and that makes me sad.

Please try to transfer some of your awesome pitching mojo to Raul Valdes, who will be taking your place, as he and the rest of the Phillies lineup take on Max Scherzer and the Tigers. They're going to need mojo, luck, and a few holy miracles to come out on top.

How much do you miss Cliff Lee? Talk about that and the game in the comments below.
