To repeat the #Yankees aren’t getting Cliff Lee, #Mariners concerned about David Adams ankle plus apparently another team has jumped in hard
Encouraging, but I’m pretty concerned the Rangers may be that other team and "jumped in hard" means more than I'd like to give up.
i have learned deal done with #Rangers, Smoak and 3 others for Lee and reliever Mark Lowe #Rangers, #Mariners
My stomach hurts.
It looks like RHP Blake Beavan, RHP Josh Lueke, and 2B Matt Lawson are the three prospects going to Seattle.
Steep, but I don't feel like that's bad at all, given the financial relief. But now this team has lost a first baseman who was a great bet to be at least average going forward this season, plus several seasons of cost-controlled star potential.
Smoak not in #Rangers lineup tonight. Arias at 1B vs. Lefty. Matchup or just in case of completing Lee deal?
I'm afraid. I'm very afraid.
An official of uninvolved team said that #Rangers now willing to put Justin Smoak in a deal for Cliff Lee. And don't count out #Reds.
Rangers are back on Lee. Hard to imagine Texas making this deal happen without Justin Smoak being part of the deal.
I can confirm the report by @JoelSherman1 that the Rangers are making a major push for Lee. They appear to be the team jumping in late
Hearing #Rangers are working really hard on #Lee now. Tricky because of finances with team sale not complete and MLB-imposed budget
Source:SEA-NYY talks stalled over identity of second player in the deal, second baseman David Adams.We'll see if another team has jumped in.
and so I hear Rangers' GM Jon Daniels canceled his scheduled chat today cuz meetings running late. Hmmmm
