It’s no secret that Philadelphia is home to some of the most “passionate” fans in sports, but Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee was probably a little weirded out by a recent gesture by one fan that was bizarre even for Philly’s standards.

Yup, some weirdo sent Lee their fingernail clippings in the mail. I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean – is it a show of support, or a gross souvenir from a Cliff hater? Either way, that’s more than a little unsettling. Sounds like the kind of thing you’d expect to come from a horror movie, not Spring Training.

Stay safe, Cliff.
