Multiple sources just confirmed that Cliff Lee will sign with the Phillies.
The deal is reported to be worth five-years, $120 million. That is two years and $28 million less than the Yankees offered him. He also has a partial "don't f'n trade me again" clause.
The news broke at midnight, exactly one year to the day that he was traded away so the Phillies could get Roy Halladay. Welcome back, Cliff. He is indeed, the anti-Werth.
One Phillie texted Beto Duran, an ESPN LA radio reporter, and said, "We are sick!"
The Yankees weren't happy:
Roy, Cliff, Roy, Cole. R2C2!
