It was announced tonight that Cliff Lee has signed with the Philadelphia Phillies according to reports by MLB Trade Rumors. TR Sullivan of MLB Blogs is reporting it as is the Associated Press. I will go on record to say that I am rooting hard for the Boston Red Sox in 2011. No freakin’ way the Mets have a shot in hell to go anywhere. While I was hoping he would not sign with the Yankees and he has spurned them, I would rather him be a Yankee than a Philly.
You can say “We Believe” until you are blue in the face. No shot in hell!
After all the commotion about getting more years from the Yankees and the Rangers, Lee reportedly signed a five year deal, worth $100 million with the Phillies. I think the new devil in baseball is the team from Philly. This is a preliminary agreement. But who is kidding who? This will be official.
Let’s Go Mets 2013?
