We’ve been on hiatus since Monday thanks to a hectic Winter Meetings schedule, but Mike and I are back to run down all the stuff we missed. And there’s plenty of it.
Cliff Lee remains atop the list. He has yet to choose between the Yankees and Rangers, though he has each team’s best offers at hand. We all have our pet theories on this one. If media reports are true that he wants to stay in Texas, then the Yankees must have offered a good chunk more money, or else I presume he would have chosen Texas.
Then we’re onto the other major moves of the week, including Carl Crawford and the Yankees’ courting of him. Cashman says it was a bluff. That does make sense, considering the team’s current payroll structure and its on-field needs.
What about Russell Martin? The Yanks nearly acquired him before the non-tender deadline, but he’s now a free agent and has three AL East teams vying for his services.
