Cliff Lee Rumors Take Sharp Turn As Yankees Suddenly Drop Out Of It

Big breaking news from the NY Post's Joel Sherman:

#Mariners have turned in a different direction and #Yankees do not believe they are in it now (more to come)

To repeat the #Yankees aren't getting Cliff Lee, #Mariners concerned about David Adams ankle plus apparently another team has jumped in hard

Just half an hour ago, a Lee trade to the Yankees seemed all but done. Now, though, Sherman - who originally broke the Lee/Yankees story - says things have completely changed direction. Which honestly shouldn't necessarily come as a huge surprise. If the Yankees made the offer they were rumored to have made, the Mariners would be expected to give one last shot to all of the other Lee suitors, and it seems some other team has upped the ante.
