I don't understand moving Cliff Lee though. I'm glad the Phils are asking for the moon for him, I want him to stay.

The Phils should be looking to move M. Young, D. Young, Ruiz, Utley and Papelbon.
He would get the best return and is 35 yo next month. The team won't be competing the next three or four years. Selling Lee and the Youngs make the most sense IMO.
