Cliff Lee's Agent In Touch With Yankees As Negotiations Wind Down

The whole world right now is waiting on Cliff Lee to pick his destination. Some want him to pick Texas, some want him to pick New York, and everyone wants him to make his pick soon.

On this Monday morning, there are some possible indications that Lee is looking to New York. For one thing, according to Buster Olney, Lee's agent Darek Braunecker has been in contact with the Yankees today. For another - also from Olney - the Rangers may be moving quickly on Adrian Beltre as a fallback plan. It isn't much to go on, but it's something.

As far as reports that there's a third team in the mix are concerned, George King reports that the mystery team is only willing to offer a four- or five-year contract. If true, then the mystery team isn't a contender, and Lee will indeed sign with one of the two favorites.

A decision is expected to come early this week - possibly as soon as Monday night.
