Cliff Lee's first start in more than two months did not go as planned. Whatever. 

With a little more than a week until the July 31st trade deadline, numerous scouts came to Philadelphia to watch Lee get knocked around by the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. Whatever.

In his first start since May 18, Lee allowed six runs on 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Whatever. 

The 35-year-old will get one more start before the trade deadline, but baseball writers are already saying Lee has little trade value. [Fart sound.]

Lee didn't answer any questions with his trademarked "Whatever" response, but how he ended his post-game interview perfectly wrapped up his night.
