Yes, an arbitration eligible closer making $4.1 million this year will make a huge dent in a $100+ million contract.

There is no circumstance where trading for Cliff Lee makes any sense. Hell, Hammer has a lot more trade value than Lee does right now simply because he's not attached to an albatross contract. This would be like signing Hal Gill to a 35+ $13 million a year deal for four years because we want a defensive defenseman today.
