Nobody is going to come out and say "well that was a factor" but if your wife is tugging on your shirt saying "I wish we could go back to Philly" .....

Oh and look for the Phils to dump payroll and somehow pick up a bat with their "excess" pitching


Beej, she was doing that before that whole incident ever took place.  They never wanted to leave in the first place.  By ESPN accounts (I know that's not saying much there) they were heartbroken when Lee was traded.  The guy took about 1/3 less to back there.  That should be proof enough.

If the "spitting incident" was that much of a determining factor, why did the Rangers also have no shot?  They rolled out the red carpet for Lee. 

Because Lee wants to be a Phillie.  Nothing wrong with that, and I actually applaud the guy for putting his family over the contract.
