Other players might be happy (or at least show some emotion) at hearing their name called before an All-Star Game, but not Lee. He didn't move a muscle when his name was announced before his fourth Midsummer Classic.
Lee's look didn't go unnoticed, and Twitter loved his stare.
Pictures and screen grabs of Lee's face exploded like a bomb on Twitter, and everyone had to show just how angry he looked.
Clearly, Cliff Lee does not — Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) July 16, 2013
Amy Nelson clearly loved Lee's reaction.
Cliff Lee, best moment in All-Star game history. Ever.— Amy K. Nelson (@AmyKNelson) July 16, 2013
Lee's face will go down in history as one of the most unique reactions to an introduction at an All-Star Game.
Cliff Lee's stone face during introductions was classic...— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) July 16, 2013
Lee looks like he was just called for jury duty, not introduced for a game for which it is an honor to be selected.
Perhaps the thrill of being named to the All-Star Game has worn off for him. Perhaps he didn't appreciate his welcome. Perhaps he ate some bad sushi earlier that day and was regretting it.
Any way you look at it, Lee simply didn't look like Citi Field was where he wanted to be on Tuesday night, and nothing said that better than the evil eye he gave.
