Lee to Texas

In a move that brings one of the best pitchers in baseball to his fourth different team in less than a year, Cliff Lee was traded last week from Seattle to Texas.

The move is a bummer for Twins fans, who had coveted the lefty and will now have to make do with someone else, as well as Phillies fans, who once again must watch Lee pitch for a team other than them (the Phils, despite being Lee-less, did manage to sweep the first-place Reds over the weekend.) And the Yankees didn't get Lee either, but we all know they'll sign him in the offseason.

As for the Rangers, they're the only team in baseball that has never won a playoff series, so having Lee in the fold may be their chance. They may even get out of bankruptcy.
