So the Mariners are now inexplicably buyers and as J.P. Ricciardi dithered, the Phillies pounced on Cliff Lee.
What does this mean for the Yankees?
• Now that the Indians are selling, Boston could make a move on Victor Martinez. I don’t see where they would prod the Yankees into doing anything.
• But if Boston decides it must have Roy Halladay, the Yankees will have to at least get in the mix somehow. I personally would do Joba and Jesus Montero for him, but that’s just me.
• Apparently Jarrod Wasburn isn’t going anywhere. Seattle does know it has a -44 run differential, right? Or did the Mariners just decide they needed a shortstop?
