Cliff Lee Meets With Rangers Again To Discuss Free Agency

For the second time since Cliff Lee became a free agent, representatives from the Rangers have flown to his Arkansas home to hold a meeting.

General manager Jon Daniels and president Nolan Ryan were both on hand to talk to Lee and try to convince him to return to Texas, where Lee helped guide the Rangers to the World Series. No formal offer appears to have been made, and some sources deny that any offer has yet been made by anyone, but earlier Wednesday it was reported that the Rangers were on the verge of drawing up a contract, so it's now only a matter of time. Even if neither the Yankees nor Rangers have as of yet offered Lee a deal, those offers should be only days away.

The Rangers have expressed a willingness to offer Lee as many as five years. Time will tell whether the Yankees are willing to go to six, or even seven.
