    Do you think Cliff Lee gets dealt? And what's the likelihood it's the Dodgers?

    I think this means it's less likely he gets dealt.

    good point
    and i hadn't even thought of it from this side
    then again, maybe kasten and amaro have some sort of backroom/handshake deal -- "if you let us take mag, we'll trade you lee"...
    yeah, that's the ticket :whistle:

    Quite a few sources I'm reading say it's actually more likely he gets dealt now.

    I doubt the two are related, a 6 year deal for a 26 year old 3/4 starter that could end up in the bullpen, and a 34 year old 1/2 starter that will garner you 2 top prospects and another decent piece or two.

    One is more for the long-term, and Lee is only in Philly for at most 2 more years.

    fwiw...
    • Passan notes that, with the option, Gonzalez's deal would be bigger than the $56MM the Rangers gave Yu Darvish, and the guaranteed portion is already much more than the $42MM Yasiel Puig received from the Dodgers.

    He reminds me of a deal Claire made for a similar crafty lefty named John Tudor.

    What happened that season?

    It's a pride thing. It's the "Philly Way". They could be 20 GB and still wouldn't sell.

    Pretty much. All we can do is hope they lose every game between now and the deadline, tonight should be a start as they are facing Max Scherzer, and hope ATL wins a few to widen the lead.

    They've already lost 4 in a row, correct?

    EDIT: They've actually lost 6 in a row. Lol.

    I find it odd that Rich Smith guy keeps tweeting about the Dodgers' interest in Lee but no one else is saying anything.

    Crasnick and Stark from ESPN have been sited as sources in the below articles, but they don't mention the Dodgers by name. It's pretty much assumed though that if their are discussions going on, the Dodgers are involved because of their willingness to take all of the salary
