Ken Rosenthal on trading for Cliff Lee or Victor Martinez

There's been a fair amount of discussion of late about the possibility of trading for Indians lefty Cliff Lee, who is a free agent after 2010.

Ken Rosenthal has a column up today about Lee and Victor Martinez, and what it would take to pry one of them away from Cleveland:

The Indians are not looking to move either player. They would gauge interest only if they fell completely out of contention. And even then, they doubt that any club would offer enough value in return.

The Indians would want an elite pitching prospect at the level of Braves Class AAA right-hander Tommy Hanson as the centerpiece of a trade for either Lee or Martinez.

If that's true, then you can forget about dealing for Lee without including Holland or Feliz as part of the deal.
