    Looks like the Yankees getting Cliff Lee

    The Yankees were 'on the brink' of acquiring Cliff Lee last night in a deal that would include top catching prospect Jesus Montero, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik wants to move quickly and has been in 'constant contact' with Yankees GM Brian Cashman over the course of the last week, according to Sherman. Other clubs remain involved, but the Yankees are the heavy favorite to acquire the lefty.
    Sherman hears that the Mariners would get at least three prospects, including Montero and possibly second baseman David Adams. Lee is supposed to face the Yankees tonight, but that could change. If a trade is completed today, Lee will not face the Mariners tonight, or possibly for the entire weekend series (all Twitter links).

    The Mariners don't need Jesus Monetero. They need Jesus ******.

    This is stupid. The Yankees do not even need another pitcher.

    Its as if they are just getting him so other teams dont.

    Yes, they do. They cannot rely on Vasquez or Burnett.

    With the log jam in the East, yeah they do. Boston is hanging in there without half of their team, and the Rays have a VERY good staff. Burnett and Vazquez are taking turns having god awful starts. A 95 win team may get left out of the playoffs.

    Re: Looks like the Yankees getting Cliff Lee

    Vazquez is on the up and up. His last 5-8 starts haven't been terrible by any stretch of the imagination. Burnett on the other hand continues to struggle. I am actually really debating this move by the Yankees as well. On the other hand, Cliff and CC would be back together again. I hate that the Indians could not succeed with the talent they had a few years ago.

    Burnett's last start was excellent...the problem with both Burnett and Vazquez is consistency. Burnett is either great, or awful, and there isn't much in between, but they can't trade him because they gave him wayyyy too big of a contract. Vazquez is pretty much the same, either great, or awful, no in between.

    Re: Looks like the Yankees getting Cliff Lee

    makes me so god damn mad. and the worst part is that mlb pushes for this kind of stuff so the Yankees and Red Sox stay dominate. People ask, "oh how do they keep getting awesome prospects to trade?" because the way the compensatory picks are lined up it benefits the rich teams. Lost a Type A free agent get a first round pick lose a Type B get a 2nd round pick, and the rich get richer. Furious.
    Sorry I digress.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Why wouldn't the Twins do whatever they can to get Lee? My hopes for the Twins are in a free-fall with the pitching that's been displayed the last few weeks.......just terrible.
