Cliff Lee Meets With Rangers In Little Rock

Last week, Cliff Lee met with representatives for the Yankees at his home in Arkansas, and general manager Brian Cashman came away saying he was impressed. This week - on Monday - it was the Rangers who flew into town to meet with Lee. Which is sensible, given that they're the other favorite in the bidding for the winter's top free agent.

GM Jon Daniels, CEO Chuck Greenberg, and team president Nolan Ryan all represented the Rangers organization in the visit, which reportedly lasted about two hours. No proposals were exchanged, and the meeting was simply about seeing where Lee stands, and trying to plant some seeds in his mind.

Lee's agent has gone on record as saying that they're not yet accepting contract offers, preferring instead to wait and see how things play out. It shouldn't be long before we start hearing some numbers thrown around, but Lee isn't expected to sign until the beginning of December at the absolute earliest.
