Will The Rangers Offer Cliff Lee Six Years?

Baseball’s winter meetings begin Monday, and Cliff Lee is priority number one for the Rangers. The eve of the meetings began with talk about a mystery team’s interest and Lee’s agent hoping to complete a deal by the end of the meetings Thursday.

Things got interesting later in the day, as a pair of reports regarding Lee, the Rangers, and the number of years involved in their offer.

Hearing #rangers not planning to go 6 yrs on lee. Hopeful camarederie/proximity pay off. Do expect at least the #yankees to go 6.

Source: Lee has told former Rangers teammates a sixth year would bring him back to Texas.

If the Brown report is true, Lee’s future may hinge on whether the Rangers relent and offer a sixth year.
