Cliff Lee Signs With Phillies

Cliff Lee has decided to go back to the Philadelphia Phillies, choosing the team over the millions of dollars more offered by the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. Lee signed a five-year, $120 million contract with the Phillies—the third largest ever for a pitcher. He previously played for the Phillies starting in July 2009, when he helped them reach the World Series. After the playoffs, he was sent to Seattle and wound up in Texas. The Yankees’ final offer was six years, $132 million.
