And the fact that he is a FA next year means the Phils could be trading Cliff Lee with nothing to show for it again.

Meh, perhaps I'm on the Ellsbury war-path a bit too much. Overlooked his injury prone-ness. But if he can stay healthy and have seasons like he did in 2011...you don't pass that up. And I've totally advocated avoiding Boras clients AND trading Cliff Lee again...but I think I'd do it for a healthy Ellsbury.

edit: of course it puts Cliff Lee and Shane Victorino back on the same team
