Phillies sign Cliff Lee
5 years/100 million
Left 50 million on the table fromt he Yankees. Wanted 160 from Yanks, yanks held at 150. Phillies have to unload Ibanez and Blanton
Hell yeah! Wow!!!
HOLY FREAKING CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best rotation in baseball before the signing. NOW UNSTOPPABLE
I was thinking that way too, until a Giants fan said, "Phils sign Lee, yet another ace we beat in the playoffs".
Twitter / Todd Zolecki: Source: Lee agreed to a fi ...
5-6 years up to 120 mill, still in shock
Phillies make it official
Phillies swoop in and bring back Lee | phillies.com: News

Him and the wife enjoyed their stay in Philly to the point of turning down millions more from the Yankees. I gurantee Lee never planned on playing in New York, and just used them to drive up his price on the market. You don't cuss out a guy's wife, spit on her, and expect them to come to New Year:icon_rolleyes: As I've said before, if Mama ain't happy, you'r hecked.
Halladay - Lee - Hamels - Oswalt in whatever order you feel like throwing them...they should go undefeated...lol.
They don't "have" to unload anybody...but Ibanez, Kendrick and Blanton's names have been thrown about. Also talking about eating some of Blanton's salary to get rid of him.
freaking A. still need a right handed bat. i would assume the phils will def try to unload some salary and to me blanton is the logical move. i eman, i could be the 5th starter on this team.
Blanton/Red Sox talks going on now. I really don't care who takes him, just take him.
I'm not sure how I feel about Ibanez though.
Congrats on your new signing baseball fans... and since I have zero b-ball knowledge I would just like to add this...
Isn't he rich or something? ...he's a better man than I.
i heard the sox rumotr too. still don't understand why the red sox would have any interest in blanton.
...oh wait... I heard she was teh pregs int he first pick. Much better...
Congrats on signing Lee. I'm just very happy he's not going to NY.
I guess money isn't everything, because he could have gotten more in Texas or NY.
You should go where you're happiest.
rags - please tell us all you go by the username "rangerfan32" on the rangers blog .... :icon_cheesygrin:
Nope. Never been to that Rangers blog.
Actually, I'm very happy that the Phillies signed him. Better he goes to Philly than NY any day.
BTW, have you seen the Yankees message boards today? They are not happy campers.
