Amaro on placing Cliff Lee on waivers: 'Waivers? Are you kidding? No, I placed Cliff's jersey on a box of wafers.'

With trade rumors swirling around the Phillies, GM Ruben Amaro Jr. reassured starting pitcher Cliff Lee with a box of Nilla Wafers on Thursday, the left-hander's favorite kind of cookie. "I wanted to surprise Cliff with some wafers, he loves those things, so I put his jersey on top of the box at his locker at Nationals Park. Somehow that got all turned around and it sounded like I placed Cliff Lee on waivers. That's absurd, I placed Cliff Lee on wafers. I mean, his jersey. C'mon, people!"
