Four of a Kind
A year after stud pitcher Roy Halladay turned down more money to come to Philadelphia and play for a winner, stud pitcher Cliff Lee does the same. Was it just three or four calendar years ago that the Phillies franchise was being celebrated for being the first to 10,000 losses? And now we are the premier destination for mercenary guns for hire. Young talented people in other professions besides throwing a ball 90 miles an hour: please consider following the example of Messrs. Halladay and Lee.
PS I christen the Phils' starting rotation "the Four Tops" until I hear a better nickname. Barring injury, is a long losing streak now possible?
