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.
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
Quite a few sources I'm reading say it's actually more likely he gets dealt now.
post them (or at least the links), if you don't mind
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.
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.
here's a reliable one
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports writes, the Phillies' additional starting pitching depth might allow them to deal another starter, possibly Cliff Lee.
Amaro thinks his team has a chance. He wont sell until late august...
not sure he truly believes that
he could just be saying it to maintain leverage
anyway, changing the thread title :irish:
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.
6 in a row! Time to stock cupboards! Papelbon, lee, ruiz young and utley if the deal is right! Honestly this is what I've wanted for a month now
More like the amaro way....he's had alot of good moves, but hes is hard headed as fuck and goes waaaay overboard when negotating contracts
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
