Mariners Pitcher Cliff Lee just happen to be in the building today, and was kind enough to stop by and have a talk with the guys. He knows the team is struggling right now, but has confidence in himself and his team and knows they just need to start playing fundamental baseball:

I think we are a good team, we’re just in a funk right now. It’s just a matter of getting out of it, and starting to play a little more fundamentally sound, and playing the game the right way.

Lee also had only good things to say about team mate Milton Bradley, who recently asked Coach Don Wakamatsu for help with personal issues, and was placed on the restrictive list:

In the clubhouse and off the field he is a really good guy, very smart, very intelligent, he just has some issues that most people don’t have to deal with, that is obviously tough for him.

Cliff Lee also talked about what being on the restrictive list meant, and about his pitching rituals. It was a special treat to have him in the studio, hear the full interview here:
