Update: Phillies sign Cliff Lee to 5-yr/$120M deal

http://danny-knobler.blogs.cbssports...90096/26435852

Apparently the Phillies want him back now. I guess letting Werth go freed up enough money to go after Lee...

So basically it's the Rangers, Yankees, and Phillies.

It's funny, first thing media picks up. Yankees out of it. Nothing about Phillies. I guess making up for what they should've done.

No clue on what the numbers are, but Yankees offered 7-yrs/150M. He might've left a lot on the table.

Re: Update: Phillies sign Cliff Lee

This truly sucks...The Phillies stay healthy there is no way they shouldn't run away with the NL East...Probably win 110 games. I guess maybe their bullpen might be something of a weakness...And maybe you figure some of their bats might be declining, but still...**** **** ****.

Meanwhile ESPN spent 10-15 mins on Favre, reported this, and went back to splooging over Favre's career.

Did you see Steve Young leaning away from Matt Millen? Does Millen have BO or something?
---
ESPN said it was a 5 year deal at first, I wonder how much money they're giving him?

The NL East should be a breeze this year. The Mets are dysfunctional, and I don't know if that will change with a new manager. The Marlins are even more dysfunctional, and still young. The Nationals suck, but they're young also. The Braves could get the Wild card again, but basically the other guys are playing for 2nd in the division.

Really what is the practical difference between 20 million and what the Yankees were offering ( approx. 23 Million per). So long as you don't adopt Antoine Walker you'll never need that last three million per.
