Just extending the misery of not knowing what the hell Ruben is going to do, Buster Olney pointed out that Cliff Lee would likely clear waivers after the trade deadline due to the amount of money he is owed. This also gives Ruben more time to “evaluate” and OH GOD WON’T SOMEONE MAKE IT STOP.

    I really think he’s gonna end up going to the orioles. Their pitching is a mess. If we can get one of harvey/bundy/gausman from them, they need to make the deal immediately, even if they’re putting up 20% or 30% of his salary.

      He’s recovering from the anal pounding he took from Jeff Carter,Chase Utley and Roy Halladay.

      He’s also getting his stomach pumped,as it is currently filled with the sperm of the above mentioned athletes,who took turns making Kyle swallow their babies.

    Jayson Stark said something similar but he said that while Cliff Lee would pass through waivers easily, the “major league ready” talent you want in return will not likely pass through waivers which would effectively kill any deal. He can still be traded in the off-season without the hassle of the August waiver deals and he will be owed less money.

    if you were an MLB GM would you take Cliff Lee just out of rehab and owed 48 million over the next 16 months? i wouldn’t.

    Lee is owed approximately $62.5 M over the next 2 1/2 seasons. So a contender gets one of the best pitchers in mlb(when healthy) for 3 postseasons. Phils should eat about $25 M and get a top prospect. Leaving the trading team pay to $37.5 M not bad for 3 seasons ($12.5 AAV). $37.5 M is roughly what Clayton Kershaw will make in 1 year when his new deal kicks in next season.

    Cliff Lee to the Yankees for … taking Ryan Howard. No joke. Make the trade and move on. Throw in Dom Brown and Freddy Galves as sweeteners.
