    Sep 4, 2010, 4:41 PM EST

    UPDATE: According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers called off Cliff Lee’s bullpen session after he felt some discomfort in his back while throwing off flat ground.

  7. Cliff Lee says rumored affinity for Yankees is "a lie"

    Aug 24, 2010, 11:38 AM EST

    Take one listen to the Colin Cowherd radio program — “The Herd,” I believe it’s called — and it’s not hard to conceive why people don’t take the guy seriously.  Cowherd is loud and far from level-headed, and on Monday he made a few ridiculous comments regarding Rangers ace Cliff Lee. Lee was shelled for…

  8. Francisco Liriano's "tired arm" pushes him back to Thursday and sets up great matchup with Cliff Lee

    Aug 23, 2010, 10:46 AM EST

    Francisco Liriano was slated to pitch tonight, but instead his start has been pushed back to Thursday because of what manager Ron Gardenhire called “a tired arm.” Liriano has struggled in two of his last three outings after throwing shutout ball for three straight starts, so the Twins will hope that a little extra rest…

    Aug 7, 2010, 11:47 AM EST

    You know, just in case you had any doubts. Cliff Lee earned the 100th victory of his career Friday night, tossing eight innings of one-run ball in a 5-1 win over the Athletics. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA over his first six starts since joining Texas. While that’s pretty impressive on its…

  12. Cliff Lee: 'I'm going to do everything I can' to have a no-trade clause in next contract

    Jul 13, 2010, 10:55 AM EST

    Cliff Lee has been traded four times, including three moves in the past 12 months, so with free agency around the corner he naturally wants to negotiate a no-trade clause into his next contract. I’m going to do everything I can to have that in there. I want to have some control of my life.…

  15. Hey, Cliff Lee is scheduled to start against the Yankees tonight!

    Jul 9, 2010, 9:08 AM EST

    The deal is not done yet, but to my knowledge — and the knowledge of any number of New York people I asked this morning — Joel Sherman has never really whiffed with one of these kinds of reports.  It’s never 100% safe to call a deal done before it actually is, but the odds…

  16. What getting Cliff Lee means to the Yankees

    Jul 9, 2010, 8:45 AM EST

    No, it does not mean that the Yankees have “bought” themselves another title. And that’s true even if they win yet another title.

  17. Your latest addition to the Cliff Lee Derby: the White Sox

    Jul 8, 2010, 6:15 PM EST

    Larry Stone of the Seattle Times “hears rumblings” that the White Sox are “kicking the tires” on Cliff Lee.  Setting aside the fact that it’s only July 8th and the “kicking the tires” metaphor is already played out, this is an interesting one to think about.  Jake Peavy is done for the year, so there’s…

  18. Report: Rangers, Mariners engaged in Cliff Lee talks

    Jul 8, 2010, 12:20 AM EST

    Industry sources told MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan that trade talks between the Rangers and Mariners regarding left-hander Cliff Lee “appear to be heating up.” Sullivan, however, goes right on to say that nothing is imminent. The Rangers are in a difficult position when it comes to making trades. With bankruptcy proceedings ongoing and ownership still up…

  19. The Mariners are asking a ton for Cliff Lee

    Jul 7, 2010, 6:10 PM EST

    Dear lord, we are way, way short on our daily Cliff Lee post quota!  How will baseball ever compete with the NBA hype at this rate?  Let’s fix that with one last Cliff Lee tidbit of the day. Rosenthal and Morosi are saying that the Mariners are seeking “a mammoth return” for Cliff Lee.  This…

  20. The Yankees: less than break even to get Cliff Lee

    Jul 6, 2010, 5:15 PM EST

    The Yankees are totally messin’ with the Twins and Mets.

  21. The Mariners and the Mets aren't getting anywhere on Cliff Lee

    Jul 6, 2010, 2:20 PM EST

    Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com tweets that talks between the Mets and Mariners regarding Cliff Lee “haven’t progressed very far.” And this is totally understandable if last night’s report that had the Twins offering the Mariners Aaron Hicks and Wilson Ramoshas has any truth to it.  The Mets don’t have a package to match that…

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:10 PM EST

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:15 AM EST

    Jeff Fletcher of AOL Fanhouse reports that an “MLB source hears” the Twins have offered outfield prospect Aaron Hicks and catcher prospect Wilson Ramos to the Mariners for Cliff Lee.

  24. Why are the Yankees scouting Cliff Lee?

    Jul 5, 2010, 8:50 AM EST

    As the trading season gets increasingly nutsy, we’ve seen an explosion of “Team X had a scout at Player Y’s last game!” chatter.  Here’s a fine example of such a thing from Jon Paul Morosi yesterday: The Yankees, Dodgers and Cardinals were among the clubs with a scout in attendance at Cliff Lee’s start in…
