In fact, if anyone has known me long enough to follow my work, you'll remember that I have wanted the Yankees to get Lee dating all the way back to my very first story on this website in June of 2009.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were the team that was awarded the claim on the Phillies' 33-year-old lefty, and Ned Coletti and Ruben Amaro, Jr. have until Sunday to work out a deal.
So Yankee fans, we can all cross off Lee from our wish list of players we'd like to see in the Bronx.
It's alright, though. We still have the rest of the month of August to figure out if we want to pursue a player through waivers.
When reading Buster Olney from ESPN's blog, I got an idea.
What if the Miami Marlins put Josh Johnson through waivers?
