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.
