from all accounts, San Diego offered Turner more money. But Turner chose the Phillies - allegedly because his wife is from New Jersey and she wanted to be closer to her relatives.
hey, either way he's making a bleep load of money. But it's not always as simple as the team that makes the biggest offer wins. There can be other factors - personal factors - that impact decisions.
and that Phillies lineup is looking really interesting. If they have enough pitching, that could be a heck of a team. (but they won't be as much fun as the 1993 Phillies. Wild Thing, Kruk, Dykstra - that team was a hoot)
