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

    Jul 9, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    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…

  2. What getting Cliff Lee means to the Yankees

    Jul 9, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

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

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

    Jul 8, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 8, 2010, 12:20 AM EDT

    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…

  5. The Mariners are asking a ton for Cliff Lee

    Jul 7, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 6, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

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

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

    Jul 6, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Your latest Cliff Lee rumor: would you believe the Rays?

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Thanks God for LeBron-mania! Otherwise baseball would seem positively unhinged right now.

  9. Report: Twins offer prospects Aaron Hicks and Wilson Ramos to Mariners for Cliff Lee

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:15 AM EDT

    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. As a Twins fan the notion of adding Lee to the rotation for the second half is exciting, but Hicks and Ramos is significantly more…

  10. Why are the Yankees scouting Cliff Lee?

    Jul 5, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    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…

  11. Yep, the Phillies are interested in Cliff Lee

    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 FOXSports.com that the Phillies are interested in re-acquiring Cliff Lee. The Phillies obviously have other needs to fill after the loss of Chase Utley and lingering concerns about Placido Polanco’s elbow — and they have shown interest…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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.

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…
