BMF’s elation upon hearing Cliff Lee snubbed the Yankees was short lived since the very next bit of news was a deal with the Phriggin Phillies.
That pretty much sews up the division. I mean who is gonna beat a rotation of Halladay, Lee, Hamels & Oswalt? It doesn’t even matter who the 5th starter is, this is hands down the best rotation in the game.
In fact this may be the best rotation in the history of the game. Seriously.
The great Baltimore rotations of the late 60’s - 70’s were before my time but I’d say this Phils staff has the Braves Maddux, Smoltz, Glavine era rotations beat. Who was the Braves number four anyway? Avery?
Gotta hand it to Philly - they layed low and sprung into action to land their man before anyone even knew what was happening.
I think this may be one of the greatest free agent blindsides in the annals of the game.
