He is NOT with the Mariners (sorry, wrong hat). He is NOT with the Rangers (sorry, wrong logo). He is NOT a free agent anymore (sorry, wrong contract info). He is now a Philadelphia Phillie.
Let me repeat: CLIFF LEE is now a PHILLIE. Again. (You are not reading a post from 2009. This is a post that's written in 2010 by a girl who's very, very, VERY excited about the 2011 season.)
He did not sign with the Yankees, which is where most people expected him to go. He did not sign with the Rangers, the team he helped pitch right into the 2010 World Series. Instead, he took less money and fewer years than those teams were offering, and took an offer from the phabulous team in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love. He'll join an already crazy good rotation of Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, and Roy Oswalt.
I'm so excited I can't sleep! But instead of counting sheep tonight, I may just count the days 'til pitchers and catchers report...
