Buster Olney, you were wrong. Hooray!
This means that the Yankees will be trying like hell to get a different start not named Lee in their rotation. Thankfully, the best available starter just went off the market and the Yankees can go nowhere but down.
The Reds were also in the running for Lee. I was hoping that would happen so Lee would exit the American League, but this is certainly 100 times better than him dashing to New York.
Thank you, Seattle Mariners!
