Hate to see Cliff Lee go, but had to be done in order to improve the team long term. Would love to see the Mariners rseign him in the offseason, but the odds of that happening are about as likely as the Rangers rseigning him. Mariners made out like bandits in the trade though so I view it as a positive move.
