Will Our Long Metropolitan Night-Amaro Never End? Cliff Lee Gets Silly with Philly
Cliff Lee risks vomit attacks on his family to sign with Philadelphia. 

In a bold step, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro countered new Mets GM Sandy Alderson's acquisition of Boof Bonser last night by somehow outplaying the Yankees and the Rangers to land 2008 AL Cy Young Award winning pitcher Cliff Lee.  The Phils and Mets GMs are clearly locked in a battle for control of the National League East and this observer for one is waiting with baited breath to see who lands the next roundhouse!!
With Bonser in the fold, Mets fans minds are set at ease.

Informed of the Phillies' deal, Alderson quipped that it "Makes some of our contracts look pretty good.  That’s a long time, and a lot of money. I thought they were trying to fix the crack in the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, not smoke crack." The spirited jesting is in good fun, but once the season starts, these two executive suite warriors will be all business!! The business of winning that is.
