Would Cliff Lee returning to Seattle at this point in his career be just cruel for Mariners fans? I don’t think so.

I am still a little upset about the Justin Smoak for Cliff Lee trade but I think that him coming back to Seattle would be a nice deal and really help people like me turn the page on that deal in 2010.

This trade, again, would include Nick Franklin and possibly another middle infielder like Chris Taylor as the Phillies are looking to move toward replacing aging veterans like Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins.

Cliff Lee is 4-4 this year with a 3.18 ERA.

I leave you with this 10th Man, who would you like to see the Mariners trade for prior to the deadline or are you satisfied with the roster the way it is? Send us your thoughts! Go Mariners!
