A quick set of links to get you through your morning grind.
A question we never thought we’d be asking: Will Cliff Lee get a win at Citizens Bank Park this year? It didn’t come last night, though the decision fell to closer Jonathan Papelbon, who gave up a first-pitch leadoff home run to Zack Cozart after entering a tied ninth inning. Aroldis Chapman then came in and threw gas, striking out Chase Utley on a 102 MPH heater. John Finger has more on Lee’s outing and wtf 2012 season, and an instance in which Papelbon was found to be overthinking something. [CSNPhilly
Asante Samuel is currently behind Dunta Cheapshot Robinson on the official Atlanta Falcons depth chart… [Pro Football Talk

Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch is counting down the best uniforms in the four major North American sports. In three rounds so far, Lukas has counted down from 122 to 51, and the only Philadelphia set mentioned so far is the 76ers at number 70. Overall, a pretty good showing for the Philly franchises. Which team has the worst unis? The Sacramento Kings. Where do you think the Philly teams will fall, and it what order? Will the Flyers retain their crown from [Uni Watch / ESPN]

Probably time for Desean to stop talking about last season. And tweeting angry. [Pattison Ave on
Mike Vick’s ribs are fine, just a little bruised. For today anyway. His preseason action is probably over, so it’s at least probable he’ll be ready to start when week 1 rolls around. There’s not much more to this story, but follow the link and poke around a bit. Philly Mag has put in some serious effort toward covering the Eagles, bringing on a great duo in Sheil Kapadia and Tim McManus to launch an “Eagles 24/7″ blog that is true to its name.
