Yankees Trade Rumors: Cliff Lee

As you probably already know, New York Yankees starter CC Sabathia’s degenerative right knee condition took a turn for the worst last week, and skipper Joe Girardi confirmed that the lefty’s 2014 campaign is over.

The gloves were hung by the bullpen with care, in hopes that Masahiro Tanaka soon would be there. When what to my wondering eyes should appear? ESPN breaking news saying this pitcher was now coming here. So I’m prancing […]
