Cliff Lee, LHP, free agent — Word is the Yankees are in the $115 million-$120 million range for five years, while the Rangers are determined to match whatever it gets up to. The Nationals are another team aggressive in this hunt.Regarding the part about the Rangers matching any offer, this info from Nolan Ryan earlier this week tells another story.
As for the predicted offer itself, I like the idea of a five-year deal, even one worth $120 million, a lot more than any six or seven year deal. Still, it's highly unlikely that Lee agrees to the first offer.
What are your thoughts on the offer?
