Report: Cliff Lee returns to the Phils......Best rotation of all time?

Holy sweet mother of pearl. What turn of events.

Pitcher Cliff Lee reached an agreement on a deal to rejoin the Philadelphia Phillies late Monday night, a Texas Rangers team source told ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett.

 

Lee's deal with Philadelphia is for five years and $120 million with a vesting option for a sixth, a source said.

Here is the rest of the story via ESPN.com. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=5917145

While I would have like to see Cliff Lee go to the Rangers for a refreshing change of pace in the free agency market. I certainly don't blame him for returning to the Phillies

----------------------------------------

The idea of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy OswaltCole Hamels, and Joe Blanton seems almost like a fairytale. Suddenly, the Phillies have put together one of the best rotations, possibly of all time. Good luck in the NL East.

Now granted my "Of All Time" only dates back to 1993 here. Thats the first season I can really remember watching baseball and knowing about the players and game.

So the best rotation "Of All Time" for me is the 1993 Braves. That rotation was so good they went with a 4 man squad. Using the 5th starter only around 10 times times that season.

Who do you all think is the best rotation "of all time"? Is it the 2011 Philadelphia Phillies? I am interested to hear your opinions.
