Phillies Get Cliff Lee Back, Sign Five Year $100 Million Contract

The Philadelphia Phillies have reportedly signed Cliff Lee to a five year $100 million contract. Apparently Lee enjoyed his previous stint with the Phillies and wanted to come back to the organization. Reports indicate that he chose the Phillies over both the Yankees and Rangers, despite what many consider to be better and longer term offers from those two clubs.

The signing of Cliff Lee by the Phillies should send shivers down the backs of other Major League baseball teams, especially those in the National League, as it establishes the Phillies as the best rotation in all of baseball and possibly the greatest rotation in MLB history.
