Cliff Lee to Phillies

Please send me to a pennant race.

UPDATE: Guess my source was right. Deal now done pending medical records. Final deal is Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for the three player I mentioned and Jason Knapp.

Original Post- Reports from sources in the Phils minor league system tell Matty that Cliff Lee will be traded from the Indians to the Phillies for minor leaguers Carlos Carrasco (who was scratched form his start this morning for Lehigh Valley), and group of players ranging from Lou Marson, Jason Donald and two more lower level A pitchers. The Marson pick-up may have weight, as it would allow the Tribe to deal V-Mart before the deadline. Lee is currently in Anaheim with his team, and would meet his new team in San Francisco this weekend, probably starting Friday in his regularly scheduled slot, which is probably precipitating the urgency on this move. Jayson Stark from ESPN is hearing something similar. Stay tuned.
