CC Sabathia, Joe Girardi and Bruce Bochy had Cliff Lee and the Phillies on their minds today.

Here is what they said:

Bochy, on the Phillies’ rotation: “Because of track record, I think you have to look at their staff as the best staff in baseball.”

Bochy, on Giants fans bristling at that statement: “That’s because of track record. … We’re certainly proud of our staff. I still don’t think they ever quite got the credit they deserved.”

Sabathia, on Lee’s decision to sign with the Phillies: “Cliff’s decision didn’t surprise me, because I had talked to him a couple days before. It was something he was familiar with in Philly. He loved it there, his family loved it there, and it’s always easier to go back to a place where you’ve had success and you’re familiar. You can’t blame him for that.”
