Cliff Lee's price tag

Jon Heyman is standing by yesterday's tweet that the Astros could make a run at Cliff Lee.

How about that price tag?
Lee is said by sources to be looking to repeat his good friend CC Sabathia's $161-million, seven-year deal with the Yankees, numbers that could all but eliminate every team but the Yankees, who imported Sabathia at that price and are very happy to have done so.

And then he lists the Yankees as prohibitive favorites to land him. Don't do it, Cliff!
