With headlines like that- sometime I wonder if I missed my calling as headline writer for the New York Daily News.
So Lee took $40M less to head to back to Philadelphia. Hard to hate on that.
The man took $40 Mil less to go back to a city that he never wanted to leave in the first place, and join a rotation that will be among the very best. The likes of which we have not seen since “arguably” the…
1998 Yankees?? (Wells -18 wins, Cone – 20 wins, El Duque – 12 & 4, Pettitte 16 wins).
Several of those Orioles rotations in the 70’s?? (Palmer, Flanagan, El Presidente- Dennis Martinez, McGregor, Qatar, etc).
Or your Braves of the 90’s? (Maddox, Glavine, Smoltz, Nagle/Millwood/Avery/etc.).
Regardless, Lee took less to join a great team / sports city. A team who has a chance to be historically great. Hard to be angry at a man for that.
