    Jul 3, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    Jul 2, 2010, 8:12 PM EDT

    Pretty much backing up Jon Heyman’s report from earlier this afternoon, major league sources tell Ken Rosenthal of that the Phillies are interested in re-acquiring Cliff Lee.

    Jul 2, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    FOX’s Jon Paul Morosi just tweeted that the Braves — who could really use an outfielder or two — aren’t currently bidding on either of the ones Kansas City is shopping in Jose Guillen and David DeJesus. As a Braves fan I give this bit of information a 50% approval rating.
