Just another game as Lee faces Rangers

PHILADELPHIA -- Cliff Lee calls Josh Hamilton the best player in baseball.

He'll say plenty of good things about the Rangers, the team he left last winter to sign with the Phillies.

"I know how good they can be," Lee said Friday.

And yet Lee, true to form, insists that starting against the team he helped to the World Series just isn't that big a deal.

"There's a little different feeling, but not that much of a difference," said Lee, who will face the Rangers Saturday night.

Lee repeated Friday that if the Phillies hadn't entered the bidding, he likely would have returned to the Rangers, suggesting again that the high-bid Yankees were his last choice among the bidders.

He also said he didn't mind that Hamilton and Nelson Cruz are missing this weekend's series.

"Cruz isn't in the lineup, either?" Lee asked. "I like that. He reminded me a few times when I was there how he had swung the bat against me."

Cruz is 3-for-6 lifetime against Lee.

Well it seems that you are unaware of the fact that he is one of the best big game pitchers in the league right now -- New York would not have rattled him anymore that Philly -- the fact that he wanted to play for Phillies fans lets you know that he take whatever heat comes his way. Yes that is allot of innings and hopefully they are 20 over .500 by the allstar break so they can breath easy down the stretch and not throw so many innings. Madson has helped and knowing they can close out games will mean a few less 130 pitch complete game efforts hopfeully.
