As expected, there’s nothing significant happening with the Cliff Lee story this afternoon. I was told this afternoon that the Yankees had not heard anything, and quite a few beat writers seem to have been told the exact same thing.
George King reports that the Yankees have spoken to Lee since Thursday, but they don’t plan to increase their offer(s).
Jon Heyman says Lee is still expected to choose either the Yankees or Rangers, but there are “strong signs” that a third team is involved. The Angels just lost out on Carl Crawford, so it could be them.
