The Toronto Sun's Bob Elliott is reporting that the Brewers are one of several teams still kicking the tires of the Indians' Cliff Lee. I wouldn't have thought Lee was still on the table, but Peter Gammons says the Indians are open to being "overwhelmed" by an offer of a young #2/#3 pitcher, among other players. One wonders if the Indians know that Jeff Suppan is technically our ace for the season, and is available!
Jon Heyman of SI also reports that the Indians are open to trading Lee. One Indian representative has suggested that catcher Victor Martinez might also be available in the right deal, seeing that the Indians' minor leagues are better stocked with hitters (and catchers) than pitchers. Given that Jason Kendall is having his career worst OPS in 2009, I'd like to think the Brewers are interested.
