Phils Sign Cliff Lee
“The association gets involved with the agents and all of that, and they always want the player to take the highest number because then it all trickles down to the other guys, and Cliff Lee bucked that trend on all counts and he’s going back to where he wants to be, and that’s with the Phillies.”
Wheeler says Manager Charlie Manuel’s respect for the players is probably one reason Lee decided to return, and the Golden Age of Phillies Baseball just got a little shinier. His signing will be complete after he passes a physical exam. Wheeler, a Blue Bell resident, appeared Tuesday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.
