    Phillies have an HOF crew of starting pitchers.

    Best starting pitching of all time?

    Lee basically walks away from 54+ million dollar as the yankess offer was reportedly 7yrs - 154 millions and the Phillies was 5 years -100 million.

    @Buster_ESPN The Yankees' offer to Cliff Lee was 6 years, $138 million, with a seventh-year player option for an additional $16 million; total $154 m.

    Wow.. That's pretty much the best starting rotation of all time.

    Could be a dynasty in the waiting for the Phillies..

    Sure he is getting paid regardless. But this is really not all about the money for him. What a sick rotation.

    I'm pretty amazed I dont recall any rumors about the Phillies. Theres usually some speculation before. Nobody cracked it?

    The Decision Part 2

    starring
    Cliff Lee as Lebron - The NYYankies as the NYKnicks - The Rangers as the Cavs - AND - The Phillies as the Heat.



    5th starter will probably be Kyle Kendrick as Blanton and his 17million dollar annual salary will be traded at 50% cost to the phillies according to espn and philly bloggers.

    Except Cliff Lee isn't an douche, Yankees are actually good, and the Phillies are going to dominate.
