Cliff Lee Press Conference: Rangers Announce They've Made Pitcher 'Menu Of Offers'

Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg called a press conference to announce the team has presented pitcher Cliff Lee a “menu of multiple offers” and that the offers were “competitive in the market place.” Greenberg said the ball is now in Lee’s court, which is either a basketball or foursquare metaphor.

There’s been no word on Lee’s reaction to what he saw on the menu. Nor do we know what may have been a part of the menu, or how many options it included. Greenberg did not reveal any financials. The popular speculation is that the Rangers are willing to offer six years, but not seven, though there’s no word on that either. I’m sorry to have so little to share.

Team reps Greenberg and assistant general manager Thad Levine met with Lee and his agent Darek Braunecker in his Arkansas home to discuss his future. The New York Yankees have made a seven-year offer.
