Pedro, Cliff Lee Back To Phillies?

Two key members of Philadelphia’s latest failed championship bid may be on their way back to the City of Brotherly Love and Falling ShortPhillies GM Ruben Amaro acknowledged Wednesday that he’s had contact with Pedro’s agent, presumably to try to get Pedro to save the team’s pitching staff midway through the season for the second year in a row.  But Amaro “feverishly attempted to downplay that possibility” — probably not wanting to seem too eager despite J.A. Happ’s long trip to the DL and starters Kyle Kendrick (4.80 ERA) and Joe Blanton (7.28 ERA) struggling mightily.

Reports also have the Phillies interested in re-acquiring Cliff Lee if the Mariners decide to trade him next month.  In probably the worst move of this offseason, the Phillies let Lee go as part of a three-way deal that got them overrated and totally unproved sack of crap Roy “Billie” Halladay.

Through Thursday’s games, the Phillies are stuck in third place, 3.5 games out of the NL East lead and the NL Wild Card, so they could clearly use all the help they can get.

    I didn’t like the Lee deal as much as the next guy but saying Halladay is unproven you’re insane.

  2. Thamara says:

    I agree with Matt, any pitcher would take Halladay’s record any time. But I’m a Cliff Lee fan!!! I hope he comes back!!

  3. Kel says:

    To say Halladay is a sack of crap is crazy. The problem isn’t him anyone can see that. I do want Cliff Lee back!

  4. Mike says:

    Is this guy serious? Sack of crap? You do know that he pitched a perfect game this year right?
