Cliff Lee chooses Philadelphia

Cliff Lee has stunned everyone by rejecting a $154 million contract offer from the Yankees in order to return to Philadelphia on a five-year deal worth $120 million (plus a sixth-year vesting option). The Phillies now own the sickest rotation in recent memory, but you have to wonder why they traded him away in the first place. They will probably have to hold a garage sale to unload some of their bloated payroll. Word is that the Rangers made a $161 million offer (including the vesting option), outbidding even the Yankees. Carl Crawford may have snubbed Anaheim in favor of Boston for equal dollars, but Cliff Lee passed on millions just to get out of Arlington.
