    Phillies and Diamondbacks are discussing Justin Upton for Cliff Lee. Money coming to AZ would also be involved.

    I'd lol at the D'Backs for days, but I don't want the Phillies to be good either

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    That would make no sense.

    Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassanArizona discussing all sorts of three- and four-way deals to get shortstop. Upton for Cliff Lee (per @pedrogomezESPN) could just be a start.

    I literally couldn't explain it any further than this.

    I doubt it's a simple 2-team trade. Lee doesn't fit well in Arizona, in my opinion, and Upton is much more valuable and young.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen

    I love Cliff and everything but man, Upton in red pinstripes would just be beautiful.

    It'd be a hell of a lot better return than the first time Amaro traded him.

    This works for both teams imo. If Arizona can't get a SS, might as well trade for an ace depending on how much PHI picks up.

    Cliff Lee last 4 years:

    2009: 3.22 ERA, 3.11 FIP, 3.64 xFIP, 6.6 WAR
    2010: 3.18 ERA, 2.58 FIP, 3.06 xFIP, 7.2 WAR
    2011: 2.40 ERA, 2.60 FIP, 2.68 xFIP, 6.7 WAR
    2012: 3.16 ERA, 3.13 FIP, 3.06 xFIP, 4.9 WAR

    Like I said, it all depends on how much money PHI kicks in.

    Forget that it doesn't make sense from an age/talent perspective, I always thought the D-Backs were set with very good young pitchers. Why would they want an aging guy under a long term deal to block one of their spots?

    Source insists Diamondbacks aren't actively talking Cliff Lee for Justin Upton. Lots of interest in D-backs' young pitching.

    Dbacks source tells me the Upton/Lee stuff "hasn't been discussed" and is "off base."
