THE PHILLIES ARE BUYING A CHAMPIONSHIP!

I'm really just curious how many media outlets will spin the story that way instead of ol' folksy Cliffers taking "less" money to play where he was comfortable (although the average annual value is higher than the reported offers that the Yankees and Rangers made even if the sixth year isn't guaranteed).

Had the Yankees signed him for the same dollars you can bet there would be another outcry about disparity. But the Phillies? Nope, this is just old friends reuniting!

We should all get Phillies hats now cuz they are the team to beat. The vaunted foursome of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels. Ouch.

Ah, it's a lot like Maddux, Smoltz, Glavine, Avery/Neagle/Millwood and what did they ever win? But I'd feel better about it if Cash would stop twiddling his thumbs and strengthen the Yank's major weakness (the whole pitching staff).

the yankees payroll is still at more than 25% higher than the phillie's payroll. yankees fans still cant bitch that other teams arent treated like the yankees because they arent the yankees.
