    If they could just dump Howard, they'd be unstoppable! I can't remember a top-rated free-agent ever making a deal like this, for less money and years.

    Hate to say it (actually I don't...I have as much love for the Steinbrenner kids as I do Eli) but the Yanks were shitted on for being the thirsty ring buying fags they are. Of course that goes both ways. Boston and Philly can implode and be known as the next gay empires.

    Hate to disappoint Philly fans and snappy but it doesn't make a difference.

    Sox look tough on paper, and Phils need much more consistent offense no matter who's starting. I'm just happy Phils brass is making an effort to stay competitive, which is something maybe a Royals or Padres fan can appreciate.

    Plus Brian Cashman looks like a tool going back home empty handed. :artiejj:

    I love Halladay, but don't forget Lee's role in our last WS win. He was the hero.

    lee's okay, and he does have a ring.

    but hes hasnt thrown 2 no hitters in his career, let alone one season. i still root for doc, most of us up here still do.

    He IS great... no doubt. Got to see him in action in a win against Atlanta this Summer... what a good time we had! :D

    I totally agree that a perfect game makes one top-dog, but my point is that I doubt anyone on the staff cares about intra-squad rankings. That's gotta be the best starting rotation I've ever seen (on paper).

    One's gotta love a player that's not beguiled by the Yankees mystique (and their huge contracts).

    Personally, I don't know how he can turn their deal down, but maybe he feels he's got enough money. Good for him.

    was that the game he threw a two-hitter against the braves? he sure is a treat to watch in person.


    but yea the phillies are definitely contenders in '11.

    unless you go back 50 years or so, you probably wont find a better rotation anywhere. hopefully their lineup will have learned to swing at a pitch on 2 strikes.

    I wouldn't mind if they blew-up the line-up and made a push for 2012, since they've got the rotation locked in for a few years. Trade Howard (somehow), move Rollins to 3rd, bring Valdez in at short, platoon 2nd to keep Utley healthy, send Dobbs and Francisco to the Mexican League, and bring up a few prospects to get them experience. That's what I'd do as GM.

    NL East will be very interesting next year. Maybe the best division in baseball now (since the Rays are toast).
