Joel Sherman is reporting on twitter (Joelsherman1) that Cliff lee and Mark Lowe have been dealt to the Mariners for Smoak and 3 other prospects. If this is true, then (gulp) I firmly believe it is time for the Angels to become sellers. The team is old and divesting itself of some payroll might be a good call at this point. This is a strong move by Rangers. I tip my cap to their front office.
Update: Rosenthal has confirmed this. The Rangers are only picking up 1.5MM of Lee's remaining 4MM.
