I’m breaking from tradition. We deserve it, especially after I spent a year quelling all of the Cliff Lee talk on this site.
Phillies traded Lee on December 14th, 2009 for 3 prospects. They then signed Roy Halladay.
1 Year later, they re-signed Lee to a 5 year deal. We essentially rented him out for a year, received 3 prospects, plus the best pitcher in baseball, and then we got him back.
