Lee takes command, Phillies beat Dodgers 3-1

June 7 Camden Courier-Post:

Cliff Lee has shown just a few snippets of his anger during his time with the Phillies, and each time they had to do with balls hit back to him.  There was Game 1 of the 2009 World Series against the Yankees, when Johnny Damon hit a popup to him. Lee flicked his glove at the ball in a disdainful manner as he caught it.  Lee had another such moment in the seventh inning Monday.

Phillies draft slugger Greene with 39th overall pick

June 7 CSN Philly:

There is nothing quite like draft day for a ballplayer. For those lucky enough to have their name called and have the dream of playing Major League Baseball that much closer, draft day is about as good as it gets.  But for Larry Greene, the strong slugger from Berrien County High School in Nashville, Ga., draft day was a little more emotional than it is for most young players.

Brown gets his crack against lefty pitching

June 7 CSN Philly:

Domonic Brown admits that he was a little curious to see the Phillies’ lineup when it was posted in the clubhouse Monday afternoon.  After going 1 for 17 in his first four games with the Phillies this year, Brown has hit .448 in the last 10 games on 13 for 29.
