On the Second Day of Baseball Christmas...(UPDATED)

...the Baseball Fairy gave to me: two trade rumors and the promise of no Yankee named Lee...

As I tweeted this morning, I didn't want Cliff Lee to become a Yankee because I knew I could never love him. We all know I have a complicated relationship with my baseball players and, as was the case with Grandy this year, it takes me some time to love transplants. I just know that with all of his undesirable tendencies (shooting snot rockets in the dugout, anyone?) that even if Lee got his clean-cut-Yankees-team makeover that I would still shudder at the sight of him in Pinstripes. Yes, I'm selfish, but you love me so it's okay.

On the rumor side, the Yankees are set to pick up Russell Martin to back-up Jorgey (UPDATE: this has actually been confirmed, per this NY Mag update) and Phillies pitcher Joe Blanton may be headed to B*ston to lead off the Bad Sox's rotation.

I wonder what the Baseball Fairy will bring us for the third day of Baseball Christmas? Come back tomorrow and find out, kiddies!
