He does look a bit strange in an A's uniform. :P

I spelled it that way as a subtile hint. Andre in a A"s uni is really wierd. nice going getting the hint

BS. What were the hints in these words you also just misspelled?

Wait what? thats the way my mom told me those words were spelled. but I intended to misspell Etiher to give that hint

Did you purposely misspell "Ethier" a second time to give another hint?

It's amazing to think how good some of those Expos teams could've been if they held onto their talent.

Granted, Lee didn't break out for many years after they dealt him, but the names they gave away over the last 20+ years...

So what is the "right" uniform for Cliff Lee now?

When he got traded from Cleveland to Philadelphia, I'm fairly certain the early shots of him in Phillies pinstripes made it into this thread. Since then, he spent half a season in Phila., half in Seattle, half in Texas, and is now back in Philadelphia. I'd argue that his success in the 2009 post season (and the national exposure he got from being on that team) got him associated with the Phillies, even after he left (and now that he's back, it's even more so.) I don't think I'm letting local media coverage cloud my opinion, but of course that's always possible. Just curious.

It wasn't a hint, you didn't know Ethier was ever in the A's organization

I know Ethier was in the A"s organzation. I have his A"s card.

Ok, well it was a good excuse for misspelling "either"

Also, why do you continue to use quotations as apostrophes?

ehh. i tend to get visits from the grammar nazi alot. lol. ive always thought quotations were apostrophes. I just guess a force of habbit?

Habit, not to be confused with Hobbit
