Philadelphia Freedom

Cliff Lee takes less money than was offered by New York to return to Philadelphia?!?
Both the Yankees and Rangers had better offers on the table, but Lee apparently fell in love with the Phillies during the team's 2009 run to the World Series and wanted to return. The Yankees, according to ESPN, offered a six-year deal worth $138 million with an option for a seventh season. After the Phillies traded him to the Seattle Mariners last year, there were times when Lee sounded like a jilted lover when he talked about the Phils.

The Philly Chamber of Commerce could not have asked for a better PSA!
