The Phillies "would love to get Cliff Lee back"

File this Jack Curry tweet under Things No Phillies Fan Really Wants to Hear Right Now:

Spoke to baseball official who has regular contact
w/ Phils. He said they are itching to add a starter and would love to
get Cliff Lee back.

You can also file it under “Things That Would Never, Ever Happen in a Million Years.”  I mean, on what planet would Rubin Amaro — or any other GM — make a deal that screamed “I totally blew it last winter” like this one would?  How would this even work? As a do-over trade? Would Ramirez, Aumont and Gillies go back to Seattle?  Would Cliff Lee tell Amaro to eff-off the second he got off the plane in Philadelphia, or would he send him a telegram asking him to kindly eff-off prior to his arrival?

I think the Phillies would be more likely to make a trade for Terry Mulholland than they would for Cliff Lee at this point.
