whirlwind signing of the NEW number 33, Cliff Lee by the Philadelphia Phillies has
definitely brought out the reactions from fans all around baseball. It is safe
to say the reaction is mixed across the board from those that despise the
signing to those that really love it.

There are however something’s that Phillies fans need to keep
under control and that is over hyping the starting rotation, we all know the fan
base in Philadelphia can turn their love into hate on the toss of a coin. They
can deny it all they want, but deep down they know who they are and it’s those
fans that will be the first to call for Amaro’s head or Charlie to be replaced
when Phillies famous four get swept by a team like the Pirates or Astros.

One more note for the Phillies fans we don’t need a cutesy name
for these four guys, so enough with ‘Phour this’ or ‘that Phour’ the H2O was fun
but lets leave that as a thing of the past it really is ‘water under the
bridge’.

Should we be surprised at the general response from Yankee fans
who say what they will now, the majority thought they had Lee in pinstripes and
now of course the jibes at Lee for going back to Philadelphia are nothing more
than that of a spoiled little brat not getting that Christmas gift they wanted.
They are not the only group of fans that have shown that deep down they despise
Lee for wanting to go where he wanted to go and not where others thought he
should go.

For those that still seem to be bewildered by Lee leaving money
on the table to sign with the Phillies, ask LeBron James, he seems to think ‘when
your getting that much money $20Million is nothing, it wont change your life,
it’s about where you want to be after the first $100million’
.

Just remember it’s not even January yet, hell any or all of them
could twist an elbow opening Christmas presents, or hurt a rotator cuff carving
the turkey. This is one Phillies fan that wants to enjoy the 2011 season with no
expectations other than to be truly entertained all season long by a
Philadelphia baseball team that has chemistry and energy with every start.

On a final note, what if the Phillies traded Blanton, Kendrick
and whoever could they still land Zack Greinke … ho!ho!ho!

    Hah, but you don’t like the R2-C2 name? I thought “Phour Loko” was pretty inventive, though I don’t remember where I saw it. People love attaching special names to players (or groups of players, as it may be). Gives them something to rally behind, I guess. And it gives good Christmas gift ideas! Anyway, sure there are plenty of people expecting some crazy win percentage out of the four whatever-you-call-them, but I think level-headed, reasonable fans probably realize it’s still a great showing out of them to get 95-ish wins. I personally think it’ll be around 100, maybe up to 102. Of course, there’s part of me hoping some miracle will happen and each of them will win every single game and the 2011 Phillies will become the winningest team in baseball history. But that’s really just unrealistic, considering they have a combined winning percentage somewhere in the 60-70% range. Also, with the Yankees fans…it IS pretty funny to read/hear people saying “It was tough to lose Lee.” News for you bud, you never HAD Lee. The sense of entitlement will be difficult to knock out of any Yankees fan, ever.

    Yeah, Lee has back history… so does Roy… if they’re healthy though…. oh gee. And what are the chances Greinke would just lock up on the big stage? I say MAN UP DUDE.

    H2O is water under the bridge, eh? That’s funny.

    Who dispises the signing? Yankees and Rangers fans? To hell with them. And, as you will no doubt recall, the 2010 Phils were swept by the Astros in 4 games, and in 2009 the Orioles came here and swept a 3-game series with their crappy pitching staff.

    I’m hearing and reading a lot of stuff comparing this staff to great starting staffs of the past. That’s interesting because none of them have thrown a pitch yet. Some have annointed them the best staff in baseball history, but they aren’t letting history play out.
    That’s how hopes are dashed and fans get disappointed. It is truly possible to enjoy something while it is happening and put it in perspective later, but that’s too much for some folks.

    Speaking of baseball history, lots of great pitching staffs have been assembled only to fall short for a variety of reasons. Conversely, lots of mediocre ones have won championships. So, let’s just see about this one.
    They still need to score runs to win, as we saw in the Giants series.

    You are so right that there is a long time until everyone finally get together in Clearwater in mid-February, but you got to like the vibe of this foursome possibly already getting into a few NL fans heads with so much time left until that first “official” pitch.
    That is one of the great underlying thnigs that baseball has that football doesn’t get to utilize. Mentally teams can get into an opponents head even before the first dab of opintment hits a sore and aching arm. Love, hate, obsession or headcase, the end result is who is standing on top of the mountain in early November.

    Christine – I guess the only name that has caught my eye so far is the ‘Phenom Phour’, although I see now MLB Network has given them a name too.

    Jeff – I sense this year will be fun with the ups and downs for all too ridicule, well us anyway.

    muleman – Thanks for stopping by, your absolutely right, which is why I also say, lets wait and see before we brand them with something unobtainable.

    RR – As you say, its who’s standing on top the mountain in November, the fun is in the climb, I am sure these guys will make it interesting.
