Both the Yankees and Rangers have presented formal "menus" of offers to Cliff Lee, presumably with varying years and dollar mounts, plus options and incentives. How much more is left to decide? I suspect today will end with the Yanks getting their man.
In other news, the Sox and Yanks have both been after erstwhile Dodger catcher Russell Martin, with the Sox reportedly making an offer yesterday. The Sox also no longer have to worry about giving up a first-round pick for a middle reliever, thanks to signing Carl Crawford. That would seemingly clear the way for a full-fledged pursuit of Scott Downs, a signing of whom would have the dual benefit of keeping him away from New York.
Will we see all these deals done today, or will we have to wait through the weekend? Comment away on all the hot stove action here.
