Cliff Lee Trade Idea


OCangel

Recommended Posts

Angels get:

LHP Cliff Lee

Salary:

2014: 25 M

2015: 25 M

2016: 27.5 M (12.5 M buyout)

Phillies get: Josh Hamilton

2014: 15 M

2015: 23 M

2016: 30 M

2017: 30 M

And Garret Richards

Angels would get their top of the line starter and Phillies would get an outfield powerboat for right field and a cheap pitcher who's under club control for a while.

The Angels could then spend their remaining 20 million a year budget on signing Choo to finish the offseason signings. Offer 6/120 to Choo.

RF- Choo

CF-Trout

LF-Calhoun

1- Pujols

3- Freese

2- Howie

DH- ?

C- Conger/ Ianetta

SS- Aybar

1/2- Weaver

1/2- Wilson

1/2- Lee

4- Santiago

5- Skaggs

That trade could never happen. I don't think the Phillies are going to kick in an extension at major bucks that Hamilton would demand to waive his full no-trade clause. Lee has 20 of 29 teams blocked of which I'm sure the Angels are one since players with mega-contracts always block all of the big spending teams.
