    StoneLarry tweets- Done deal: Mariners get LHP Cliff Lee for RHP Phillippe Aumont, RHP J.C. Ramirez, OF Tyson Gillies.

    Come on, people. If the site is loading slow – don’t keep hitting submit.

    One trick is to back out all together and refresh the thread to see if your post went up.

    The duplicate and triple posts are just making the site load issues even worse.

    I’m not sure I follow the logic suggesting that the M’s-Phillies deal for Lee is safe if the issue is between the Phils and Jays. Halladay functions as an ace to replace the outgoing Lee. If the Phils can’t work out Halladay with the Jays, then would they b willing to part with Lee?

    If Halladay has agreed to an extension with the Phillies, there is no way he won’t be traded there. That would mean the commissioner’s office granted a window for negotiation, based on an agreed-upon trade. Whatever the other moving parts, the teams can’t now decide they’re not satisfied and undo Halladay’s contract extension. If they have issues with each other about something, they have to work those out, but that’s not Halladay’s problem and he’s entitled to his agreement. I’d expect the union to make a stink if they tried to back out of that.

    Whoa you guys are getting off topic here. Derek says blame him for the glitch and I intend to do just that until it becomes offi…oh, there it is, you’re off the hook.

    Once it became clear that it wasn’t an M’s prospect, then the deal wasn’t in jeopardy. Since Halladay agreed to the 3/20 below market extension, then the Phillies are going to move heaven and earth to satisfy the Jay’s and complete the deal.

    Boy, they certainly scheduled the broadcast of the Hot Stove League from the Bellevue team store for an otherwise uneventful day, didn’t they? Rizzs, Drayer, Niehaus and Buhner? Heh.

    In related news, Jack is now one Felix extension, Cliff Lee extension or significant player signing away from never having to buy his own drinks in Seattle again….

    It’s official! Mariners have put out a press release! Yay! Lee is a Mariner!

    Jack Z is a WS from his lifetime free drinks. But he does amaze. I’d stand him a few rounds, just for the hope he has already brought.
