The one team we do not match up well against is the Phillies. We should have spent the Carl Crawford money for Cliff Lee. The combinbation of Haliday, Lee and Hamels is one no team will want to face.

hey boomer we think alike, i wanted lee when he was available twice, otherwise when halladay cam available. our mgt is somewhat smart, but not VERY smart.
they try to take the middle road, ie lackey vs a top pticher (sabathia, lee, halladay) . or after they make that mistake, they make anotherr saying we cant spend now after spending for beckett and lackey. sure they could have and it's possible they will pay twice. once for signing lackey. once for not signing lee bacause "we cant do that now, we have lackey".
the phillies had no problem signing all those pichters even though it made them #2 spenders in mlb at 175 mil.
and who wants to face lee, halladay, hamels. no one. hope they dont make it out of the nl.
if they beat us it will be mnagement's stupidity for not going for lee (twice) or halladay (or sabathia).
lee is up there in age, so youd think he wont be there forever. but damn! they are good.
henry pretends we are not as rich as the yankees. he is. he just doesnt want to put himself in that category
