If Cliff Lee had to be gone for a guy like Upton, thats a no brainer. Ellsbury not to sure about that, maybe see how they value Worley. Ellsbury is a Boras player though, so he will be going to free agency almost guaranteed.
The Phillies are in a pickle. They have a bunch of aging guys on the downside of their careers. Ruben's trying to win now, but he runs the risk of putting this team in a hole if he trades a package of prospects again for another piece in attempt to make a run. Washington is clearly a step ahead of us now and in the immediate future (until Strasburg and Harper hit the FA market in 5 years). They have the TV deal coming up so they aren't going to rebuild. I just don't like the outlook of this team.
