  • With Billy Butler there, he doesn't really play for that team. It is not a great fit.

    • Lee's agent already said the NY fan thing is not an issue and won't be a factor. But then again even it was an issue, he has to say that to keep Yankees in any potential bidding to drive up his cost. Who knows? I doubt it matters.

        I don't know if you saw what I posted earlier... but starting next season they will have a new 20 year, $3 Billion dollar contract with Fox Southwest. That's $150M a year before playing a single game. If Lee costs $25M a year, it's worth the investment. Both sides want to make sure the Rangers are winning cause that will raise TV ratings.
        Wait...so you are telling me that the Rangers have a 20 year gaurenteed contract deal already set up? Regardless of how they do? I am sure that will push the owners to cut 20 million dollars of profit and put it into their payroll now.

        :/

        Their are tons of very very very wealthy owners in MLB, but only a few are willing to spend the big bucks and the Yankees have clearly established that they are willing to push that limit significantly further than anyone else.

        • The Rangers need to grow some balls and demand Cliff Lee start games 1, 4 and 7. I don't give a **** that Lee doesn't want to go on short rest, it's two goddamn starts and it's the World ******* Series.

                Greinke is going to be gone, it's better for you to understand that. With the best system in baseball, the Royals should be good to go in two years and right now is the best time to load up even more by trading Greinke.

                  That's not going to happen, and the Reds won't trade Chapman for him either so I don't see any way in which the Royals trade him to the Rays. It will either be the Twins (Duensing-Hicks-Sano-others) or the Rangers (Holland-Perez-Beltre) or someone else I can't think of.

                      He still had an awful year this year and might have to be traded.

                          He needs to quit being a little *****.

                            Just my opinion, but World Series > resigning Lee. That's how the Rangers should be thinking.

                              They should worry about winning this World Series. Because they could also lose because they didn't pitch him 3 times and he very well could leave anyway.

                              • I'd go...

                                Lee
                                Lewis
                                Wilson
                                Lee
                                Holland/Wilson/Feldman
                                Lewis
                                Lee

                                It's unconventional, but Lewis is a fly ball orientated pitcher and he would be great in San Francisco's park. The Giants are a bit tougher, but I suppose...
