Red Sox close to getting Cliff Lee ???

Postby Kraftwerk » Tue Jul 28, 2009 6:41 pm

According to WEEI, the Red Sox are close to a trade that would send Cliff Lee to Boston for a package of Michael Bowden, Josh Reddick, and one more prospect.

The Red Sox have reportedly dangled Clay Buchholz in a package for Roy Halladay, but would be better off swinging this deal instead. Bowden, 22, has a 3.09 ERA and a 64/35 K/BB ratio in 18 starts for Triple-A Pawtucket. Reddick is batting .269/.346/.510 with 13 homers for Double-A Portland. It's a decent haul for the Tribe, but not nearly what the Blue Jays are demanding for their ace. We'll keep you updated.

5:40pm: Well isn't this ridiculous. Rob Bradford at WEEI tweets: "I have not reported anything. Somebody is hacking into my account."

The twitter era of reporting is truly a crazy one.

Previous reports of an imminent Cliff Lee-to-Boston trade are false.
Apparently a person created a fake WEEI Twitter account and posted the rumor. Cliff Lee is still very much in play, and the Dodgers are considered "front-runners" by a handful of experts. The Phillies are also picking up talks.
