Yankees Lose Out on Lee

by @ 5:04 am. Filed under 2011 Yankees

Well, this was a kick in the you know what.  Cliff Lee signed at a discount with the Phillies.  You wonder if this is some kind of curse of George or something.  I have full faith and confidence in the current ownership, but you wonder if George would have let this one slide like this.  Oh well.

The next best option out there is to trade for Zach Greinke although we’re one of the teams on his no-trade list.  His past anxiety issues worry me as well.  What really worries me is that the other loser in the Lee sweepstakes, the Rangers, end up with Greinke and now the Yankees are looking at some issues.

I was a little surprised the Yankees scooped up a couple of players in the Rule 5 draft.  Of course there’s not a lot of risk here because if they don’t catch, we just give them back.
