10:35 AM ET 07.30 | The Philadelphia Phillies have been adamant about not trading elite pitcher Cliff Lee, but that tone appears to be changing as we get closer and closer to the MLB trade deadline. Now the Phillies sound open to trading Lee, but the price seems a bit high. In other words, don't expect Lee to get moved. There is not a contender out there that has enough in terms of value to actually rip Lee away from Philadelphia. If someone does emerge as a serious candidate to trade for Lee at this point, it'll have to come at the expense of the franchise's future for a long, long time.
