Cliff Lee Trade

Congratulations to the Phillies for completing a trade for Cliff Lee, also a former Cy Young winner like Roy Halladay. The trade includes Lee and Ben Francisco, a right handed outfield bat the team also needed. The Phillies in return gave up some highly touted prospects, catcher Lou Marson, pitchers Carlos Carrasco and Jason Knapp, and infielder Jason Donald. Although scouts figure that Marson and Donald have All-Star potential, Knapp is considered the key to this deal, since the Indians view him as a true future number one starter. However, we must applaud the Phillies for bolstering their inconsistent rotation in exchange for prospects that often do not succeed in the majors. More reaction to this trade after we see Lee and Francisco join the team officially.
