Perhaps the biggest fish in the Free-Agent pond was Cliff Lee. Lee signed a 5 year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies worth $120 million. Lee was a member of the Phillies when they made it to the World Series in 2009 and was then traded to the Mariners in the deal that landed the Phillies Roy Halladay. Lee was then traded mid-season to the Texas Rangers and promptly led them to the World Series. The Phillies now have an amazing starting rotation with Halladay, Lee, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels.
