    Tex better be 100%. No time to be a hero the 1st week of August

    @jay_jaffe

    thx, good to know RT @joe_sheehan: 10/5 and blanket NTC would both override claim — player has to approve. I don’t know about a partial NTC

  3. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Interesting Grandy/Jeter flip. Breaks up Martin/Jeter righty combo?

  4. CountryClub August 3rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Before people ask, it looks like he has Grandy #1 so he could go lefty/righty 1 – 7.

  5. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    That’s interesting, Jerkface. So…Cliff Lee can force the Phillies to keep him if a team on his no-trade claims him. I hope that’s what happens.

  6. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    That is the point of a no trade clause after all

  7. Warning Track Power August 3rd, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Russell Martin-Allow me to introduce you to C.C., the staff ace!

  8. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    I’d love to be a fly on the wall if Amaro was ordered by ownership to convince Lee to waive his NTC.

  9. scuzzles August 3rd, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Damon is available. Should pick him up for the stretch run. At least he might get a clutch hit when we need it.

  10. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    It seems the Phillies are stuck with Halladay through 2014 if that vesting option kicks in. Between Hamels, Lee, Halladay, Utley and Howard the Phillies don’t have much financial freedom to hire hitters.

  11. kd August 3rd, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    how pissed must cole hamles be? he signs a long term deal and the phillies trade away two all star caibler ofs and might trade away a top quality pitcher

  12. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    The Phillies will pull Lee back and trade to trade him this winter.

    Pete says it wasn’t the Sox that claimed him

  13. mick August 3rd, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Almost Whole…

    Yea but he can take a swim in his money bin to feel better…..

  15. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Agreed Blake, they’re using the waiver process to gauge interest. They might have found their future trade partner.

  16. tomingeorgia August 3rd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Scrooge McHamels.

  17. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    But they definitely want out of that contract I would think. Moving it will require extensive negotiations spanning a long period of time. They have to start laying the groundwork now if they plan to sign any free agent hitters. They need offense badly.

  18. JobaTipsHisCap August 3rd, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I am sure cc will pitch pretty well. that’s his best when he faces average teams.

  19. kd August 3rd, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    just once i’d love to take a swim in my money bin like in duck tails

    the phillies are paying howard far too much for what he is. he’s like the tail end of the giambi contract

  20. Ys Guy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    damon’s ob% is even worse than ichiro’s.

    too bad for johnny, he’s not going to make 3K.

    i hope he gets signed somewhere, i just hope it’s not with the yankees.

  21. Ys Guy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    hammels knew a rebuild was coming when he signed. in fact if i just signed a 6 yr contract with them, id want them to start rebuilding right away.

  22. MoRings42 August 3rd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    yuck I don’t like that lineup.. Jeter at leadoff is fine.. keep him there. At 2 increase the chance of him hitting into a double play should granderson reach. Granderson should be in a RBI spot, 20 of his 29 HRs came against RHP. Martin should not play against RHP period. Keep him against LHP even if it means he becomes the backup. Hes hurt us too much this season.

  23. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    @jonmorosi
    Source: #Dodgers awarded the claiming rights on Cliff Lee. It remains unlikely that they ultimately obtain him from #Phillies. @MLBONFOX

    Figured

  24. kd August 3rd, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    hate to say it but damon is done

    no hof for him. and since he’s was a yankee, no more love for him in boston.

  25. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    The phillies Seriously have a chance to get out of the Lee deal…..the dodgers are on a spending spree….the phi,lies should consider taking advantage…..don’t know if LA is on lees NT list though

  26. Ys Guy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    arod would be the best hitter for the 2 hole even with the righty/righty jeter thing. swisher would work well, too but i’d rather see swish’s and grandy’s power back further in the lineup.
    jeter’s the only one with a better ob% than arod and grandy and swisher both have alot more xb hits than arod.
    arod also leads the team in steals.

  27. kd August 3rd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    la is the new north east of baseball

    the dodgers seem to want a superstar at every position. it’s smart. with no football in la, there’s less local competition and a chance to make a ton of money

  28. luis August 3rd, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Blake,

    Why do you thought that the Dodgers where the team that claimed Lee? Does this means that the Dodgers are their likely trade partner for the winter?

  29. Bronx Jeers August 3rd, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    Maybe they were blocking the Giants.

  30. Ys Guy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    the angels are not fooling around, with their pitching staff, pujols and trout the dodgers are really feeling competition for fan supremacy in SoCal.

  31. theREALkevin August 3rd, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Man if the Dodgers get Lee, they’d be pretty scary in the playoffs. Adding two talents like Hanley Ramirez and cliff lee, not to mention victorino, that team would be really good. Also like others have said, Angels are looking pretty damn good as well, good times for baseball in LA.

    Luis, just saw your response from earlier, sry had to run right after I posted. Your DH comment made me laugh though :) Gotta go again, have to go to a college summer league game tonight, have a good night and go Yankees!!

  32. Ys Guy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    I-5 Series?

  33. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    “Why do you thought that the Dodgers where the team that claimed Lee? Does this means that the Dodgers are their likely trade partner for the winter?”

    Because they need a pitcher and they are maybe the only team that wouldnt freak out if the Phillies just chose to dump the entire contract on them

    The Dodgers are operating like the Yankees are supposed to.

  34. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    I wont be shocked if the Dodgers get Lee…..they arent messing around and this could be a good opportunity for Philly to shed a lot of money…..they could sign two good players this winter with that money.

  35. DaveD August 3rd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    “The Dodgers are operating like the Yankees are supposed to.”

    Supposed to is a good term.

  36. Peepee Hands August 3rd, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Boy that lineup looks so much more, deep and intimidating with Tex back in it.

  37. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    They should hammer Millwood.

  38. luis August 3rd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Have a good one Kev.

    Blake,

    It seems that more and more teams will be operating like that….The Angels are scary IMO and if the Dodgers pick Lee, they will have arguably two of the best LHP of the MLB….With a lineup of Ramirez, Kemp, Ethier and company…They will be real good as well

  39. Abomb82 August 3rd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Philly should use Lee’s money and the other salaries coming off the books (Blanton, Victorino, etc.) to sign Hamilton AND Melky.

    Then go after Hughes or Garza as a FA in 2014 to replace Halladay.

  40. cs in la August 3rd, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    I live in LA and it has been baseball oblivion for a long time….finally everyone is talking about the Dodgers. Everyone is psyched on the Dodgers these days and the commitment from new ownership. Last year at this time, the future looked awful, but how nice to have a free spending owner.

    LA sports is looking pretty solid: Kings, Lakers, Dodgers, USC

  41. CompassRosy August 3rd, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    “They should hammer Millwood.”

    You mean like last time?

  42. kd August 3rd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    the dodgers probably also thought they’d get cole hamels in the offseason

    now they can get an older version of him for less money and years. it’s smart move by them to claim him

    if philly is reasonable in the discussions, it’s not that far fetched

  43. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Dont forget though that the Dodgers arent even the best team in LA…..and the Angels owner will spend some coin as well…..thats going to be a fun rivalry for headlines……almost like if the Yankees still acted like the Yankees and the Mets were any good.

  44. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    They should have hammered him last time as well…..doesnt mean they will….

  45. ET August 3rd, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    JonHeymanCBS
    #dodgers arent messing around. if they like zack greinke, maybe he moves 45 minutes up I-5 & becomes a $150 million man

  46. ET August 3rd, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Meanwhile, we get to watch us get Casey McGhee at the deadline and see which washed up RFer will be replacing Swisher next season, which blackhole will be the catcher, and which 40 year old will be the “platoon” DH with another 40 year old

    Fun time to be a Yankees fan.

  47. Yankee Trader August 3rd, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    Ichiro has the most career bats vs Millwood and is batting .431 vs him and batting 8th. Either Joe is not going by his binder, or the other Yankees have great career stats vs him too.

    Hopefully now all your questions about the August waiver rules are answered! :)

  48. luis August 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    Hey Trader,

    No, I have a bunch still ;)

  49. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    First place just ain’t what it used to be, huh?

    Sucks that other teams try to compete too.

  50. comet August 3rd, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Hey Luis, YT and Nick.

    Interesting line-up tonight. Listening to the game tonight on MLB audio.
