Lee Excited to Join Phillies
Cliff Lee met with reporters this afternoon in Anaheim. He and Ben Francisco are expected to join the Phillies tomorrow in San Francisco.
Lee could pitch Friday or Saturday against the Giants at AT&T Park.
Here is some of what he had to say:
“Obviously, I’m going to miss all these guys here, but it’s an opportunity for me to help a team that’s in first place and is the defending world champion. As far as that goes, I’m excited. But I’ve got to figure out how to get there and meet up with them and get acclimated to their team. It’s exciting. It’s kind of neat knowing Benny’s going with me, so I don’t have to do it all by myself.
“I don’t really complicate things much. I just want to give them a chance to win every time I take the mound, put up as many zeroes as I can and go as deep in to the game as I can. I’m going to have to learn how to get a bunt down more consistently. Other than that, it’s the same game. Obviously, different players. But I don’t think it will take long for me to get used to those guys and get to know those guys. I’m anxious and excited to get started.”
