Yesterday I was having a Cliff Lee conversation with a friend.
Yes, smarty pants, I have friends. Ok...a friend.
Anyway, he put the whole Cliff Lee signing with Philly situation into perspective for me.
He says, "Look at it this way, the Rangers didn't re-sign the losingest World Series pitcher in team history. Big deal."
I never thought of it that way. Good riddance you big loser!
Truthfully, as much as it would have been nice to have Lee leading the Rangers pitching staff, I can't say I'm too upset about him leaving. The Rangers have been down this overpaid path before with A-Rod and A-Rod put up good numbers here, but his contract put a stranglehold on the payroll. Well, that and the ridiculous Chan Ho Park deal.
At any rate, we'll see what happens next season. I don't know about you, but Spring Training and Opening Day can't come soon enough.
