  1. Are the Phillies scouting Cliff Lee, or is it something else?

    Jun 30, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    There was some buzz around the Twitterverse late this morning about how the Phillies had sent a scout to watch Cliff Lee pitch against the Yankees last night.  Could they be trying to get in on that hot, hot Cliff Lee action?! Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times says no: What the heck would [Phillies…

  2. The Mets' price tag for Cliff Lee: Mejia or Wilmer Flores

    Jun 30, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Joel Sherman on the chances of Cliff Lee going to the Mets: Thus, if the Mets want Lee — and, boy, do they ever — a trade will have to be built around Jenrry Mejia, whom Seattle likes, but does not love, or Wilmer Flores, an 18-year-old infielder already thriving at High-A. In conversations with…

  3. The Cardinals may be in on the Cliff Lee Derby

    Jun 28, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse risks being sued by Scott Boras for using the phrase “mystery team” in referring to a Cliff Lee rumor, but he’ll take that risk to bring you the latest rumor. And the rumor is this: The Cardinals may be the “mystery team” making a play for Cliff Lee. Price suggest…

  4. A Cliff Lee-to-the-Mets deal gets complicated

    Jun 28, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    UPDATE: Joel Sherman contradicts the Burkhardt report, saying that the Mets will not require a negotiating window with Lee if Mejia is involved in a deal. 9:07 A.M.: I said last week that I think the Mets are the frontrunners for Cliff Lee because (a) they have a top young pitcher they are willing to…

  5. Mariners could trade Cliff Lee sooner than you think

    Jun 26, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Two executives from clubs that have inquired about Cliff Lee tell Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com that the Mariners are willing to move the left-hander “immediately” for the right offer. This particular piece of information didn’t grab me right away either, because I would think any team should be willing to do that, but Rosenthal adds…

  6. The Mets may get Cliff Lee, but they won't deal Angel Pagan to do it

    Jun 25, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    My gut tells me that the Mets are the most likely team to trade for Cliff Lee. They’re seemingly willing to part with Jenrry Mejia, who would be a good pickup for the M’s. They said yesterday that they wouldn’t demand an opportunity to negotiate with Lee on an extension before making a deal, which…

  7. Cliff Lee throws complete game as Mets and Twins reportedly emerge as trade talk 'frontrunners'

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee was brilliant again last night as rumors continue to swirl about his time in Seattle winding down, holding the Cubs to one run in a complete-game victory that lowered his ERA to a league-best 2.39. Lee missed most of April, yet leads the league with four complete games (including two shutouts) and has…

  8. Are the Rangers targeting Cliff Lee?

    Jun 21, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    It’s often hard to tell what the question was that led to a given answer in an interview, but this story in today’s Dallas Morning News suggests that the Rangers are targeting Cliff Lee. I say “suggests” because it’s rare that any GM will say “yeah, we’re interested in such-and-such a guy,” and in fact…

  9. Cliff Lee is ridiculous

    Jun 19, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee tossed a complete-game shutout in a 1-0 win over the Reds on Friday night. He scattered six hits while striking out seven and of course, walking none. Incredibly, the left-hander has walked only four batters over 77 2/3 innings this season. Just to put things in perspective, Daisuke Matsuzaka exceeded Lee’s walk total…

  10. The Rangers have asked about Cliff Lee and, oh yeah, Roy Oswalt

    Jun 18, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    Well, whaddaya know? The Rangers have been inquiring about big name pitchers after all.

  11. Should Twins offer Wilson Ramos for Cliff Lee?

    Jun 17, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    If the Twins want a second ace left-hander for the postseason, that’s probably what it will take. Cliff Lee went 4-0 with a 1.56 ERA for the Phillies last October. The team won all five of his postseason starts, with Lee pitching 40 1/3 of a possible 45 innings in those games. His addition to…

  12. Twins reportedly considering 'a serious run' at Cliff Lee

    Jun 17, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    I was a radio guest on ESPN Twin Cities earlier this week (you can listen to the segment here) and one of the co-hosts, Tom Pelissero, hinted that he had some information about the Twins being legitimately interested in Cliff Lee. Pelissero has now put it in writing, reporting today that “more than one person…

  13. The Phillies "would love to get Cliff Lee back"

    Jun 16, 2010, 3:38 PM EDT

    File this Jack Curry tweet under Things No Phillies Fan Really Wants to Hear Right Now: Spoke to baseball official who has regular contact w/ Phils. He said they are itching to add a starter and would love to get Cliff Lee back. You can also file it under “Things That Would Never, Ever Happen…

  14. The Mets and Mariners have had "serious talks" about Cliff Lee

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    That report is from Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog.  The sticking point: the Mariners want Jon Niese, but Omar is unwilling to trade him. I think I have to side with Omar here.  Given that Lee is going to hit the market this winter, why not wait it out, be aggressive, and try to get him…

  15. Forget it, Seattle: The Yankees aren't interested in Cliff Lee

    Jun 9, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    The New York Post reported this morning that the Mariners were thinking about trying to peddle Cliff Lee to the Yankees. This afternoon the Daily News reports that they can peddle all they want, but the Bombers aren’t buying: But despite a published report that suggested the Bombers were interested in a deal for Mariners…

  16. The Mariners are scouting the Yankees: Cliff Lee trade, anyone?

    Jun 9, 2010, 1:12 PM EDT

    George A. King of the New York Post reports that the Mariners are kinda sorta thinking about trading Cliff Lee to the Yankees.  The “kinda sorta” is because there’s no sense that the Yankees are at all interested in Lee. According to King, however, the Mariners are currently scouting the Yankees organization and are interested…

  17. The Dodgers inquired about Cliff Lee

    May 27, 2010, 2:24 PM EDT

    Yesterday I inferred that the Dodgers had made inquiries about Roy Oswalt. That was confimed by the Los Angeles Times’ Bill Shaikin last night. And Shaikin goes one better: The Dodgers asked about Cliff Lee’s availability as well.  The Mariners, like the Astros, rejected Colletti’s overtures. Either move makes sense for the Dodgers, who really…

  18. Agent softens quotes about Cliff Lee's future with the Mariners

    May 4, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Over the weekend agent Darek Braunecker made headlines and drew criticism for saying he “wouldn’t anticipate” Cliff Lee re-signing with the Mariners, with my main beef being that there’s just no need to say stuff like that six months from free agency and immediately after Lee’s first start. Lee apparently agreed, because he quickly tried…

  19. UPDATE: Agent 'wouldn't anticipate' Cliff Lee re-signing with Mariners

    May 1, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Lee tried to soften the situation in a chat with reporters after Saturday’s game: “Basically during the season I want to focus on pitching and not worry about that stuff. That’s more spring training and offseason type of stuff,” Lee said. “During the season I want to worry about pitching and focus on getting…

  20. Cliff Lee returns, and it is good. Mostly.

    May 1, 2010, 7:57 AM EDT

    Yeah, I think Cliff Lee is all better. Lee handcuffed the Rangers for seven innings last night, allowing only three hits, not walking anyone and striking out eight. He threw 98 pitches, 73 of which were strikes. He was up around 93 m.p.h. with his fastball.  It was like the guy from Game 1 of…

  21. Cliff Lee to make his Mariners debut tonight

    Apr 30, 2010, 2:16 PM EDT

    He’s facing the Rangers and he’s more than ready.* He says “my sights have been set on them for several days now. I’m preparing the best I can for them.” Lee threw six shutout innings during his rehab start for Tacoma on Sunday, which suggests that the Cliff Lee we’ve seen the last two years…

  22. The Week Ahead: Cliff Lee to make Mariners debut

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee was dominant in his rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma, tossing six shutout innings against Salt Lake. The former AL Cy Young winner threw only 68 pitches, allowing three hits and no walks while striking out four. Two of the hits were a bunt single and a fly ball that the center…

  23. Roy Halladay following in Cliff Lee's footsteps

    Apr 22, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay hurled a complete-game shutout Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing just four hits and one walk while improving to 4-0 with a 0.82 ERA on the season. In an odd coincidence the man Halladay was essentially traded for, Cliff Lee, also began his Phillies career with an identical 4-0 record and 0.82 ERA last season.…

  24. Cliff Lee scheduled to make M's debut April 30

    Apr 21, 2010, 9:46 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said on Wednesday that Cliff Lee will make a rehab start in Triple-A on Sunday. (As you can tell by the photo, they’re quite excited about his arrival in Tacoma!) Then assuming there are no setbacks, he will make his regular season debut for the Mariners on April 30 against…

  25. Cliff Lee's suspension dropped

    Apr 20, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    ESPN 710’s Shannon Drayer reports that Cliff Lee’s suspension for throwing a pitch over the head of Arizona’s Chris Snyder during a spring training game has been dropped by Major League Baseball. Lee’s defense, in a nutshell, was that he had been struggling with his command early in spring training anyway, and that he really…
