OK so lets cut to the chase according to Joseph DelGrippo a featured columnist for Bleacher Report he says
“Speaking with someone familiar with the situation (and verifying the initial conversation), the Twins traded for Cliff Lee last week, but the deal fell through. The primary player going to the Seattle Mariners, catcher Wilson Ramos , suffered a strained oblique during Saturday’s game. Ramos is expected to miss seven to ten days .”
He goes on to say once Ramos is cleared to play they will again make the trade. So the question is if true then do the Mets sweeten the pot for Lee or go elsewhere?
