Thank you Indians!!!!

Dan from Saints of the Cheap Seats must be mad, but I'm happy. Cliff Lee is now a Philadelphia Phillie. Lee is 7-9 this year, and has pitched really well, just, the Indians blow every game. There is a pro and con on this move in my situation:

Lee is my ace on my fantasy baseball team. He's pitched so well this year, but the record doesn't show it. Put him on the reigning champion 1st place Philadelphia Phillies and I climb the standings in my league.

This gets Philadelphia out of the chase for Roy Halladay. I know the Yankees don't want him, but the Red Sox do and they sound like one of the only teams that would want him. It's bad enough that he pitches in the same division as my favorite team, but on my arch rival team! I don't know if this move helped or not. Post your comments on your response, and please vote on the brand spanking new poll.

I may start a new blog on Top 100, 50, 10 whatever lists. I made the order for the Top 50 Most Influencial Musicians of All Time. Imagine who the winner is. Keep reading, don't stop til' you get enough. No this isn't a superstition. Who will win? I KNOW!!!


  1. I think the Phillies are the only NL team strong enough to beat the AL champ in the World Series this year, so I'm glad they got Lee to strengthen them.

  2. I don't think the Sox will land Halladay. The Blue Jays say that they want to trade him, but unless someone throws something ridiculous out there he's not moving. The Red Sox, who have had one of the top rated minor league systems ever since Theo restocked it was offering 3 of their top 10 prospects and the Jays turned it down. I'm not sure what they were looking for, but it wasn't realistic. Now the Sox can focus on acquiring Adrian Gonzalez. ;)

  3. I doubt Halladay goes anywhere. Toronto won't want to face him in their own division. That being said, I look for the Dodgers, St. Louis and White Sox to make a push for him... We'll see!


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
