This is the best pitching staff assembled since the Braves had Maddux, Avery, Smoltz, and Glavine. But this staff is crazy. If this team stays healthy and can find their swing, they will be unbeatable. They can put my 45 year old fat and out of shape body in right field and still win 100 games.Deplorably Proud To Be An American
I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

Oh, and if Lee was so injury prone, why were the Yankees offering him 7 years for $160 million dollars, guaranteed. This is just sour grapes on you, nothing more.

We shall see how everything fleshes out. Hamels & Lee both have had a history of injuries. Halladay/Lee & Oswalt are all on the wrong side of 30. Which isn't all bad, I'm just saying that things may not turn out as expected. Every contending team has at least one gaping hole. That's why they play the games on the field and not on paper.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

Like I said on fb, barring injuries and if they just have normal seasons (well normal for them) this team can win 100+ games. Now all they have to do to clinch a ws win is get howards head out of his ass in the playoffs
I love that he said f@$k you to the stinking yanks and i guess Texas ain't so great after all. :D

From an ESPN Insider column, so no link:
But even with the somewhat remarkable acquisition, there are some less promising realities to consider. Mostly on offense.
Given his contract situation, Philly could look to move Hamels for a right-handed hitter for the middle of its lineup, as losing Jayson Werth takes away most of the gain from reacquiring Lee and leaves the Phillies very left-handed. Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Placido Polanco and Raul Ibanez are on the wrong side of 30 and more likely to decline and/or get hurt than to improve. Rollins often has been hurt in the midst of a four-year free fall, Utley has fought injuries, and Howard and Ibanez are just declining. Domonic Brown is an outstanding prospect but won't match Werth's production, and Brown is also left-handed. Ruben Amaro Jr. has put together an enviable rotation, to say the least. However, the Phils are oddly unbalanced now and it's strange (but not bad) to see them commit this money to Lee with an old, injury-prone lineup staring them in the face.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender
