According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees are "all but certain" to land starter Cliff Lee from the Mariners after talks between the clubs progressed on Thursday night. The report said that the deal was not yet done, and that other teams (the Mets, Twins or Rangers) remain in talks with Seattle, but Sherman characterized the Yankees as being "on the brink" of acquiring the 2008 Cy Young Award winner, who is 8-3 with a 2.34 ERA for the Mariners this year.
The Yankees are in first place in the AL East, two games ahead of the Rays and 4.5 games ahead of the Red Sox. The team has allowed the second-fewest runs per game (4.1) in the American League. Lee, who leads the American League in ERA and complete games (5), would appear likely to help New York build upon that strength.
