Mike Sweeney was talking about how great it was to be with the Phillies, how he will not take’ a moment of it for granted.’ After all, he’s played about 16 years without any post season play. He’s delighted to be with a contender.
In the course of the conversation, he mentioned something Cliff Lee once told him. Apparently Cliff Lee said that playing for the Phillies was ‘the most fun he’s ever had.’ (Daily News) He said the club house was great.
There’s a pang, isnt’ there, when one hears what Lee said about his former team.
Right back at you, Cliff. We wish you were still here.
And as for Mike Sweeney, Ibanez calls him a ‘force of positivity.’
Welcome, Mr. Sweeney.
