A Grammy Thought

"Empire State of Mind" was this year nominated for Record of the Year. It came out in mid-2009 and was the music of the Yankees' 2009 World Series run. Now it's 2011. Between the release of the song and its Grammy consideration, Cliff Lee has been traded to the Phillies, pitched for them, pitched for two other teams, and come back to the Phillies. On the bright side, if a new song this week gets nominated for a Grammy in two years, Lee would almost certainly still be a Phillie when the ceremony rolls around.
