Cliff Lee: The Mariners are in last place in the AL West and are expected to deal pitcher Cliff Lee in the coming days/weeks before he leaves for free agency at season’s end. “The Mets, Dodgers and Rangers have inquired on Lee, according to major-league sources. Many in the industry project the Twins as the front-runner. The Yankees, currently set with five starters, seem more likely to pursue Lee in free agency than in a trade.” Smart move by the Yankees. Why give up top prospects when you can just outbid everyone this winter? [Fox Sports]
