    Cliff Lee rumors

    Latest rumor is that Cliff Lee has two offers on the table for 7 years at more than $20 million a season, and neither team is the Yankees or Rangers...

    My head says the Reds can't be in on this but after Chapman and the play they made for him last year part of me wonders if one of these teams is the Reds.

    I hope it isn't the Reds. Don't want to have to pay a 39 year old pitcher $20 mil in 2017.

    It was previously reported that Washington had $40 million they could spend on free agents. They spent $18 million of that on Werth, but that still leaves $22 million...

    It's possible.

    It's reportedly NOT the Nats either.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    My guess would be the Red Sox and Nationals. But if it's not the Nats, I guess I'd say Red Sox and Angels.

    My heart says not to rule out the Reds. But my head knows better than to get my hopes up.

    Angels are involved.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I'm in full agreement here.

    I don't see Lee being that great even 2 or 3 years from now.

    My sources say its a sign and trade:

    Reds sign Lee and immediatly trade him and his albotross of a contract to the marlins for hanley ramirez and cash, who in turn trade him to the red sox with cash for their single A team. the red sox then trade him to the braves with cash, then to the mets who trade him to etc etc (eventually all major league teams will have held the rights to Cliff Lee). Until he is finally traded back to the Reds for Dorn and a PTBNL with only a total of $10MM left to be paid on his contract over 7 years.

    It could happen, but my sources (i.e. my imagination) are rarely accurate.
