This Day in LSB History

One year ago today, the Texas Rangers traded for Cliff Lee.

We talked a lot about it.

First, we saw that T.R. Sullivan had an item saying the Rangers were "working hard" to get Cliff Lee, with Derek Holland and Chris Davis being on the table, Tanner Scheppers and Martin Perez off limits, and Justin Smoak in the "we really don't want to trade him" category.

Then, we saw that Joel Sherman reported that the deal was done.

This was the thread to celebrate Cliff Lee as a Ranger.

This was my reaction to the trade.

That was quite a day.  It seems like a long time ago.
