Now that we're a few days removed from the Cliff Lee signing, all the current Phillies are starting to weigh in. Chase Utley was the latest and he compared the Phillies fab four to the Beatles.

"It’s not looking so bad. It’s like John, Paul, George and Ringo. We’ve got four guys that are unbelievable. I’ve had the opportunity to play with Cliff a few years ago and he’s a workhorse. He prepares well, works quick, makes the infielders stay on our toes. He’s a good pitcher and a good teammate."

He was also asked whether this move was made because the Phillies are going all in since their window of opportunity is still open?

"I think the organization realizes that you don’t run across this group of guys very often and to put us in a position to be successful, you’ve got to give them a lot of credit. You never want this to come to a climax, you want to keep it going in the long haul and try to prolong it as long as possible. … It’s not easy to put a team together like this, so it’s pretty cool."
