Cliff Lee Returns To Phillies
After a couple of weeks on the Yankees-Rangers seesaw, Cliff Lee shocked the baseball world by signing a five-year, $120 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday.
An article from ESPN states:
He picked up the phone, thanked Rangers general manager Jon Daniels for his time in Texas and revealed he was signing with the Philadelphia Phillies. Agent Darek Braunecker simultaneously delivered the news to New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. And just like that, Lee was back where he felt he belonged.
I'm happy to see Lee head back to the Phillies, though I think he would have been a tremendous help to the Rangers again. I'm just glad he won't be wearing a Yankees uniform; red is a good look for him.
