So by now everyone is aware that Cliff Lee spurned the Rangers and Yankees for the greener pastures of……….Philadelphia??? Even more shocking, he left anywhere from 40-50 million dollars on the table. You can’t blame him. He’s a folksy, county boy from Arkansas, so he has more money than he will ever need. The Phillies offered him something the Yankees and Rangers couldn’t; piece of mind. Lee enjoyed his time in Philly in the summer and fall of ’09, and the rotation is infinitely better now than when he was there. It should also be noted that Lee’s young son is a Leukemia survivor and Philadelphia has one of the top children’s hospitals in the country.
