For the Phillies, it is the best Christmas present ever. Clifton Phifer Lee reportedly is back. The free-agent lefthander, who helped the Phillies reach the World Series in 2009, reached a preliminary agreement on a contract with the Phillies, a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press on Monday night. The dealĀ is worth $100 million over 5 years with a vesting option for a sixth year that would make the deal worth $120 million, according to MLB.com. Two separate sources told the AP that the New York Yankees and Rangers - who were both intensely courting Lee - received calls Monday night telling them they were out of the running.

Who made the best deal for Cliff Lee? Maybe five years from now we'll be able to look at the three Cliff Lee trades made in the last 12 months and declare a winner. Maybe we can even turn it into a board game: Cliff Lee's All-Star Baseball. Spin the wheel and see which prospect you land on. For now, it's too soon to tell whether the Cleveland Indians, the Phillies, or the Seattle Mariners made the best deal for Lee. It's possible they could all end up as clunkers, leaving three entire cities disgruntled about Lee's departure.

The all-star break is always a good check point for what's happening with a baseball team and organization. The Phillies' struggles have been well documented, so here's a look at how things are going down on the farm as the Phillies' Lehigh Valley affiliate prepares to host the triple-A All-Star Game on Wednesday at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown. Let's start with one man's opinion of the organization's top 10 prospects. The last time Baseball America put together one of these lists, it included pitcher Kyle Drabek, outfielder Michael Taylor, and catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

YOU KNOW all the cliches about baseball trades. The best trades are the ones that help both teams. They happen, but not all that often. Usually one team gets the bull and the other one gets the horn. And in this era of the salary dumps of megabuck veterans being passed on to contenders for a package of untested minor league prospects, there is a two-way peril. Sometimes, the veteran counted on to earn his inflated salary in return for pitching your team into the postseason, becomes an Inglorious Basterd.

Don't make me laugh, dude Texas reliever Darren Oliver found it difficult to keep his game face on against Los Angeles, his former team Monday - the Rangers' first meeting with the Angels this season. "It's hard to look those guys in the face when I'm out there pitching," said Oliver, who was with the Halos from 2007 to 2009. "I might start laughing or something because I know them so good. " He managed to stay solemn, pitching two perfect innings of relief in the 4-3 win. The good with the bad Even when things go wrong for Jonathan Papelbon, it can serve as a reminder of how good he is. When the Boston Red Sox closer gave up two-run home runs in the ninth to the ubiquitous Alex Rodriguez and the obscure Marcus Thames to give the New York Yankees an 11-9 win on Monday night, it marked the pitcher's first blown save in the regular season since July 28, snapping a streak of 22 straight conversions.

Kyle Drabek. Michael Taylor. Travis D'Arnaud. Jason Knapp. Lou Marson. Jason Donald. Carlos Carrasco. Adrian Cardenas. Josh Outman. All Phillies minor leaguers who would have been part of any conversation of the farm system's best prospects over the last couple of years. All gone, traded in the deals that brought Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Joe Blanton to Citizens Bank Park. Reading outfielder Domonic Brown, by acclamation, remains the Phillies' most promising minor leaguer.

In the last year, the Phillies have traded away seven of their top 10 prospects, as rated by Baseball America before the 2009 season. That, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, is a cause for concern. While acquiring a former Cy Young Award winner, the Phillies dealt another in Cliff Lee to Seattle for three prospects in an attempt to replenish the farm system. In return, the Phillies received pitchers Phillippe Aumont and J.C. Ramirez, and outfielder Tyson Gillies from the Mariners.

The Phillies will likely introduce pitcher Roy Halladay at a news conference today at Citizens Bank Park, according to a person with direct knowledge of the team's plans. The event - it could be delayed a day because of the medical reviews necessary for all players involved - will make official a complex trade that cost the Phils their ace and two top prospects, but brought them the game's preeminent pitcher. According to multiple reports, the Phils will send highly regarded righthander Kyle Drabek to Toronto, along with outfielder Michael Taylor and catcher Travis d'Arnaud.
