Cliff Lee Would Solidify Red Sox Pitching Rotation, But May Not Be Worth Giving Up Top Pitching Prospects (Video)

With the trade deadline inching closer every day, speculation is growing around the best players available on the market.

As of Sunday, the Philadelphia Phillies sit 10 games behind the National League East leading Braves, and reluctantly announced they would be willing to move some of their key pieces. Michael Young and Cliff Lee are at the top of the list, but whether the Red Sox would give up some of their top pitching prospects to obtain the left-handed pitcher is debatable.

Listen to the video above to hear what The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo has to say about the potential deals that could be made in the next week.
