Trade talks between the Mariners and Twins regarding Cliff Lee are getting "interesting" and "have possibilities," Sports Illustrated 's Jon Heyman reports .

There's no deal, but "one person familiar with the talks" are quoted by Heyman.

Heyman notes another source tells him the Mariners are interested in Twins catching prospect Wilson Ramos and that Seattle wants a catcher that's ready to play right away. Ramos isn't going to play every day in Minnesota anytime soon.

The Twins are hardly alone in having interest in Lee. The Rays, Phillies, Yankees, Mets and Reds have all  reportedly been in contact with Seattle about Lee.

UPDATE:
The Seattle Times' Geoff Baker reports nothing is going to happen tonight . AOL Fanhouse's Jeff Fletcher tweets he's heard that in addition to Ramos, the Twins have offered outfielder Aaron Hicks, the team's 2008 first-round pick.

Outside of Domonic Brown - I would tell Ruben Amaro to admit he failed and give Seattle any other 4 prospects they want from our system. Take your pick.

Be done with.

Halladay
Lee
Hamels

Once the offense gets healthy - it's over.

Lee talks getting 'interesting' with Twins

If you think the Twins of the past, yes they would'nt have a chance to sign Lee.  With the new stadium, we are not the same Twins business as usual.  But if they don't pull the trigger with picking up a player of his callaber when they have a chance, then it shows the twins want to remaine a small market team.  From what I've read Lee would welcome being a part of this team.  He is health and will help our Twins make a run for the World Series.  Will we give up young players? YES.  Will the Twins bennefit this year YES!  Do the Twins want a chance to win this wear?  Time will tell.  If they find a way to pick up Lee they have a great chance to win the division and move forward.Yes he will be a costly free agent at the end of the season, but lets work with this season when the Twins have a great opportunity to do great things.

Bedard was hurt when the M's signed him, they knew he wouldnt be ready to pitch until after the all-star break, so right now he is ahead of schedule.

Mariners were poised to make a run for the playoffs this year. Then Bedard, who has been a total bust, gets hurt again - I hope he returns all his salary to the Mariners because he hasn't earned one-tenth of it, and Lee started out the season hurt too.

Of course it probably wouldn't have made a differnce, none of our guys can hit except Ichiro and all he hits are singles... but it sure would have been nice to see what could have happened wtih three supposedly marquee pitchers on staff.
