MLB Trade Rumors: Should Philadelphia Phillies Trade Cliff Lee To Baltimore Orioles Or Los Angeles Angels?

Hyped by on May 23, 2013 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

The Philadelphia Phillies must be realizing that it is time for a change. With aging veterans who are oft injured, as well as a manager who is in the final year of his deal and an emerging candidate simply waiting in the wings, the Phillies are not going to contend for a playoff berth in 2013. Playing in the National League East behind the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals certainly only complicates matters, and that is why it is time for Philadelphia to continue dealing away some of its more valuable assets. In 2012, it was Shane Victorino, Hunter Pence and Joe Blanton. The Phillies attempted to unload Cliff Lee last season by placing him on waivers, but they were unsuccessful in dealing him after he was claimed by the Los Angeles Dodgers. But with Roy Halladay most likely out for the rest of this season, as well as a plethora of dinged up struggling players, the time is now for the Phillies to trade Lee, with the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Angels two teams who would likely make a strong pitch to acquire the 34-year-old southpaw.
