The Yankees waited all day for a response from Cliff Lee yesterday and got no answer so they’ll continue to wait today. Here is the latest of what’s going on:
- The Yankees offer is believed to be a 7-year deal that far exceeds Texas’ in monetary value.
- The Rangers original offer was likely 5-years and $100 million, but that has been increased to a 6-year offer possibly with some form of option for a 7th season.
- Both teams actually have multiple offers on the table. The Yankees offers are believed to be a 7-years and $161 million, 6-years and $144 million, or 5-years and $125 million.
We’ll continue to wait. I’ll have updates if anything happens. Continue to check back.
