Apparently, Ed Wade turned down Cliff Lee

Richard Justice fills us in on a little rejected trade in which Ed Wade turned down a deal with the Indians that would have sent Brad Lidge to Cleveland for Cliff Lee in 2007.

"It was a combination of performance and health concerns that steered us away."

So off Lidge went for Bourn, and everybody wins. The article is actually more of a feel-good story about Lee - who I think everybody feels an appropriate level of love for.
