When I wrote in the last entry that if the Yankees acquired Cliff Lee prior to Friday night they could avoid facing him, I was entirely joking. And yet, here we are, apparently on the precipice of just such a deal.

If the deal comes down as is being reported, with Jesus Montero and David Adams in the package, the Yankees will lose two quality prospects, albeit two that don’t have an obvious place to play. Second baseman Adams, 23, is having a terrific year for Trenton (he’s presently sitting out with an injury), hitting .309/.393/.507. Adams hitting has always been solid, and when someone hits that well for Trenton, you take notice. With Robinson Cano an immovable object at second, there is nowhere for him to play—second baseman don’t make good utility infielders
