Mariners, Phillies, and Jays Agree on Three Way Trade, Lee Likely to Mariners


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/baseball/mlb/12/14/phillies.halladay.lee/index.html

Still waiting to find out who we’re giving up, God I’m terrified.

UPDATE: While it’s still unclear as to the specifics of the deal, it looks pretty definite that Halladay is going to the Phillies, Lee is coming to the Mariners, and we’re at least giving up Aumont. Other prospects rumored to be included on the Mariners end are Tyson Gillies and Juan Ramirez. According to Shannon Drayer, other names such as Brandon Morrow and Shawn Kelley could be involved. If we can pull this off without giving up Saunders or Morrow, we come out smelling like roses. If we only have to give up one of them, it’s still a pretty sweet deal.

Here’s a tweet from Jon Heyman:

“lee is in deal to #mariners. great job by them. halladay should agree to philly contract. might take a day or 2.”

It’s also being reported that this deal is unlikely to become official before Wednesday. Analytical post to follow, once more details are available.

    Well the deal obviously isn’t official yet, but Lee to the Mariners part of it is official now.

    I would rather not give up Moore either.

    I’d be shocked if Moore was involved.

    Last year’s big acquisition was Franklin Gutierrez.
    This year’s big acquisition will be Cliff Lee.

    It’s obvious. GMZ is building the most attractive baseball team imaginable. Next stop: Yulieski Gourriel!
