Re: Cliff Lee
Agreed. Alonso, Mesoraco, and a B prospect or two should be attractive enough for Seattle.
I'd think Maloney, Alonso, Mesoraco, and Duran should be enough. Seattle would re-load with major league ready prospects better than what they have now (Alonso at 1B/DH/LF and Maloney would profile as a MOR LH starter) and later (Mesoraco in two years as a C and Duran in a few years in the OF).
