Why do people keep bringing up age? It's not like Lee is a guy who hobbles out to the mound every start. This is a win now move for Boston. Lee is a cy young pitcher with no injury history. All that matters in this trade is what happens in the next two to three years. You give up a potential superstar for a current one. Lee has less time left but you do it if you want to win a world series. Boston is stocked with prospects and they have a great current team. But they have a hole they need to fill and Lee is that piece.
But seriously, this is why I said you aren't getting **** for Utley. If Cliff Lee can't get you a team's top prospect, then what do people hope to get for Chase. Everyone is holding onto their young pieces cause free agency blows anymore and these kids are cheap. No one's giving up something good for 3 months of Chase.
