Halladay to Philly, Lee to Mariners
Jon Heyman of CNNSI is reporting that the Mariners are the third team in the Halladay blockbuster, and they will receive Cliff Lee. I find this move a little weird because Philly isn't really that much better with Halladay over Lee (awesome with both), but the Mariners may have just locked up the AL West with King Felix and Lee atop their rotation next year. The Angels have now missed out on John Lackey, Halladay, and Chone Figgins. Meanwhile the Ms have ended up with both Figgins and Lee. Someone might get fired, though I suspect part of it is Arte Moreno has not wanted to approve the sorts of contracts to land the players at issue.
