On second thought…

Joel Sherman now says the Mariners are backing away. The deal to acquire Cliff Lee might not happen after all for the Yankees.

Amazing how these things can turn. A matter of hours ago — minutes ago — a deal was imminent, and now the Mariners might be looking to move Lee elsewhere. It could be that they got a better offer. Could be that the Yankees weren’t offering the players they were believed to be offering. Could be one of a million things.

UPDATE, 3:55 p.m.: If Seattle has backed out because of Adams’ ankle injury, I guess that’s legitimate, but infielders Eduardo Nunez and Corban Joseph are also in the Yankees system. I would think there are still enough pieces to do the deal without Adams, but maybe I’m wrong. Another team might be a more pressing factor.
