Cliff Lee Might Not Be On The Market

Is this report true? Or, just pre-trade deadline posturing? Probably more of the latter, in my opinion.

Anyway, here it is.

Despite the high volume of recent speculation surrounding Seattle pitcher Cliff Lee, a major league source with knowledge of the Mariners’ thinking said Wednesday that the team has not yet made its ace available.

“It is the same thing with (Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik) as it has been all along,” the source said. “He knows to contact teams when he’s ready to deal. He hasn’t done that yet, but that could change any minute.”
