It is official, Cliff Lee is a Mariner

Josh FlemingContributor IJune 2, 2016

Title says it all.  What a great offseason, Figgins and Lee.  It is nice to see us be smart in the Hot Stove league.  Well, at least currently we are being smart.

The three prospects that we had to give up for Lee seem to be a perfect choice.  The one that you may want to keep an eye on is Tyson Gillies.  He played in the “Futures” game this past summer and has a lot of speed.  Perhaps a call up within two seasons.

As far as the other two are concerned, Aumont was turned from starter to relief and JC Ramirez can throw hard, but has control issues.  They are all young, so these issues can be addressed in time.  Plus, if Lee walks at the end of 2010 we receive two sandwich picks in the 2011 draft.  Not a bad way to go if you ask me. 

Now I am really excited for next season!  I have a sneaky feeling that we are not done.  I sense something still could happen to Lopez before we start Spring Training.

Stay tuned…
