Post's Sherman on D&H: Lee deal 'on brink'

New York Post baseball writer Joel Sherman joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about the potential Cliff Lee trade. Sherman's story early Friday morning indicated that the Yankees are close to acquiring the standout left-hander from the Mariners.

 

"All sources continue to tell me what people were telling me last night: It's on the brink of occurring," Sherman said.

 

Lee is scheduled to start against the Yankees Friday night at Seattle's Safeco Field. Sherman said there appears to be a gentleman's agreement that if the deal goes down prior to the game, New York will not pitch Lee against the M's in this weekend series.

 

The key prospect in the trade would be Triple-A catcher Jesus Montero. Sherman noted that catcher is the Yankees' deepest position in the organization, making Montero expendable.

 

Assuming the deal goes through, Sherman said he expects...

Coroner: NBA alum Turpin's death a suicide

Authorities in Lexington, Ky., confirmed the death of former University of Kentucky star and NBA player Mel Turpin, and the county coroner said the 49-year-old had committed suicide.

 

Turpin's body was discovered by police Thursday afternoon at his home after a personal injury call. Turpin's sister, Margaret Burrus, told reporters outside her home that her brother was diabetic and trying to keep it under control. "I didn't know he was depressed or anything,'' she said. "I would have never said that he would have done this."

 

Turpin, a 6-foot-11 center, led Kentucky to the SEC title in 1984, averaging 15.2 points per game, and was the sixth overall pick in the draft that year by the Washington Bullets, who immediately traded him to Cleveland. He spent three seasons with the Cavaliers before ending his career with a season in Utah and one in Washington. He averaged 8.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 361...

Reports: Lee to Yanks falling apart

According to multiple reports, the framework of a deal that would have sent Cliff Lee from the Mariners to the Yankees is falling apart. Joel Sherman of the New York Post, who first reported early this morning that a deal was close, is now reporting (via twitter) that "the Mariners have turned in a different direction" and that "the Yankees aren't getting Cliff Lee." Further reports from Sherman and others suggest that the Rangers are now making a hard push for the left-hander, who is 8-3 and leads the American League with a 2.34 ERA.

Mashup: Knicks sent Isiah after LeBron

Isiah Thomas might be a laughingstock to much of the nation, but apparently he still is held in high regard in the office of Knicks owner James Dolan. As part of the Knicks’ last-ditch effort to land LeBron James, Thomas, the former coach and president of the Knicks, was sent to Ohio, according to reports out of New York. Read more about that, plus check out angry reaction around the nation to LeBron's decision to leave Cleveland. It's all at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Reports: Beasley to Wolves, Miller to Heat

According to multiple reports, the Heat were busy Thursday night working to form a roster around LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, shipping Michael Beasley to the Timberwolves and agreeing with Wizards free agent Mike Miller on a five-year, $30 million deal. Miami virtually gives away Beasley, the 2008 No. 2 overall draft pick, receiving only a second-round pick and an exchange of first-round picks so that it can get needed cap space.

 

Meanwhile, David Lee’s agent confirmed to ESPN that the All-Star forward will go to the Warriors in a sign-and-trade deal that sends Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike to New York.
