I don't know if it's brotherly love...

...but something made Cliff Lee decide to return to Philadelphia.

As a baseball fan, I love what he's done.And the Philadelphia Daily News certainly does -- check out its cover from today's newspaper.

If you are not a baseball fan, then you need some perspective here -- the Phillies have two of baseball's three best starting pitchers (Roy Halladay and Lee), and they somehow managed to sign both to contracts that are below the financial threshold that either could have signed elsewhere.

Sure, both men are amazingly rich, but both left significant dollars on the table to sign with a team that has a realistic chance of winning a championship and where they appear to be content.

Wow, what a day for baseball in Philadelphia. Perhaps it is always sunny in that city?
