Dodgers Announce Interest In Cliff Lee; SoSG Sax Announces Interest In Jessica Alba

From MLB Trade Rumors this morning:

Seven to eight teams have already shown interest in free agent lefty Cliff Lee, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. He says the Yankees and Rangers are still the favorites, but the Phillies, Dodgers, and others have checked in.

As Rosenthal notes, it's questionable as to whether the Phillies or Dodgers could come up with the money for Lee. He's expected to sign for significantly more than $100MM. I imagine the Nationals checked in as well; they do have the money and are known to be interested. While the Red Sox and Angels appear poised to spend their money on position players, we won't count them out until they say so.

About that other point in the headline; we can use this thread to debate that as well. I mean, raising one's hand up here doesn't seem very close to the reality, in either case.

Can she pitch?

My hand is up.

Sax, can you do something about the ads for Giants world series garb(age)? It was bad enough when there was Phillies and Cards crap all over the place, but this is unacceptable. If it'll cost too much, can you furlough a Son for a few weeks?

Steve Sax said...

I can't do anything about those google ads...but I'm more than happy to furlough a Son nonetheless. Let me go talk with HR.

I'd rather see her than Scott podsednik.

Eric Karros said...

Where can I submit my bid on Alba?

(searches couch for loose change)

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax, if it would help for me to submit a sexual harassment claim against someone, let me know

Josh S. said...

The Giants would LOVE IT if we signed Cliff Lee.

Neeebs said...

Be Still My Beating Heart.

@MC: I'm sure that she can catch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'd like Brooklyn Decker in left while we're at it.

karina said...

Eric Karros, I guess you'd rather bid on Zrinka.

@Neeebs she can't be better than my son catching.

If we're going to have girls on the team,I wouldn't mind Drew Barrymore.

I need my SoSG sistahs on this thread

rbnlaw said...

I like the cut of that Nishioka kid's jib.

Mr. Customer said...

@Neeebs

Oh dear...

Spanky said...

Something is raised and it ain't my hand.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh great, Jon Heyman's going on his "Jeter's a great fielder, you guys just don't get him" rant.

karina said...

@rbnlaw I agree and Dodger Blue might be a nice shade for him. Just sayin'

(cries)

karen said...

Karina--Sistah checking in.

Guys--Wouldn't you rather see Jessica in the outfield so you can watch her run?

Spanky said...

Good point, Karen. I envision J.Alb running in center field nekked holding a $12 dollar beer.

karina said...

@karen if looks would matter more than actual baseball skills, who would you place a bid for?

karen said...

Karina--I'm still hung up on CJ Wilson and his hot sideburns. Who would you pick? (besides Joe Mauer!)

Dusty Baker said...

I would like to officially announce my interest in a Sam Adams Winer Lager to go with my leftover sandwich.

Josh S. said...

I would like to officially announce my interest in the t that Dusty non-tendered in his last comment.

@Karina, Karen
MB is a bit late on weighing in. I cast my vote for Cole Hamels.

karina said...

I'm late too!

hmmmmm, tough call, but I wouldn't mind some Robin Ventura ;)

Eric Karros said...

Somehow a post featuring a half-naked Jessica Alba has transformed into a hot-or-not discussion regarding dudes.

Well played, ladies. Well played.
