Trade Idea.

Since proposing the M's acquire random crappy pitchers is the thing to do lately, here's my stab at it.

How's about Cliff Lee?

I have no reason to believe that the Indians are shipping him other than some poll I saw over at LGT.

He was really crappy in 2007, but he had a semi-decent year in 2006 and a legitimately good year in 2005.  The trend is downwards, but he's only 29 and should not be declining already.

His contract runs through 2009 with a club option at 8 million for 2010.  He's due $3.75M in '08 and $5.75M in '09.  That's pretty cheap.  The club option is $8M in '10.

So how about we offer some combination of Nick Green/Jorge Campillo/Rob Johnson/Jeremy Reed/Mike Morse for him?

Maybe he could benefit from a change in scenery.  

Maybe Mel Stottlemyre could work his magic on him.

Maybe I'll get the flying car they promised me back in 1985.

It's ridiculous to speculate about a trade based on a poll over at LGT, but I'm bored.

Any takers?
