Cliff Lee, the biggest name on the free-agent market this off-season, agreed on Monday night to return to the Philadelphia Phillies, spurning more money and contract years from the Yankees, according to a person in baseball with knowledge of the negotiations.

Lee, who pitched the Phillies into the 2009 World Series, agreed to a five-year deal worth $100 million, according to the person in baseball. The Yankees had offered seven years and about $150 million.

Both the Yankees and the Texas Rangers, who rode Lee’s left arm into this year’s World Series, were informed Monday night that Lee was returning to Philadelphia, where he will form an intimidating starting rotation with Roy Halladay, this year’s Cy Young Award winner; Roy Oswalt; and Cole Hamel


Hamels, Halladay, Oswalt, Lee, Blanton...are you kidding me.

Man, if the Giants manage to get back to the WS, that pitching match-up is going to be INSANE vs Philly.

He left $50 mil on the table from the Yankees Holy :censored: to return to the team that traded him away

NYY official: “Anybody who would leave $50M on the table obviously doesn’t want to pitch in New York. Thank God we found out in time.”

I had no idea where he would go actually. Wasn't exactly sold on the idea of him going to NY though. Phillies just got tougher.

Pau Gasol is GONE

I was never sold on him going to the Yankees because Lee was not happy how his wife got treated in New York during the playoffs. Blame this one on the Yankee fans.
