Even though it's an amazing feeling to beat the Yankees, I just wanted to say good game to Jughead... the only true Yankee fan on this forum.

Cliff Lee said before the ALDS that a trip to the World Series would make his decision on where to sign in the off-season easier. Now that the Rangers have accomplished that, returning seems more likely. "I would hope so," the left-hander said , before also saying that he's not too focused on that stuff. "Right now, I'm worried about giving this team a chance to win when I take the mound and us playing as a team and pulling for each other." Lee will start Game 1 of the World Series.

Amen to that. There are plenty of Yankee fans on this board and I can't think of one that comes on here and sticks it to other fans.

He really isn't haha. And Paul even admitted that he is jumping on the bandwagon for the playoff run...and seeing as I post and care about the Blue Jays all year round as opposed to only when they make the WS or sign Rich Harden, I don't think you should be calling out anyones Baseball fandom....at all....ever

Go. Get. A. Clue.

I don't post in this thread??? You must be out of your mind.

...and Paul is a fan as far back as I can remember. He doesn't post a lot in this thread... but wtf? That doesn't define what team you're a fan of. You really need to wake up. He just didn't want to appear like he just started cheering for them out of nowhere. I asked in the Cowboys forum years ago if there were any Rangers fans and he was the only one that said he was.

Rangers Prepare To Bid Aggressively On Lee
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [October 20, 2010 at 4:00pm CST]
The Rangers realize that it won't be easy or cheap to keep Cliff Lee in Texas, but they're prepared to spend big on the lefty once he hits free agency. Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg insists his club is not "going into it with a peashooter" and says he's prepared to bid against any other teams that covet Lee.

"We can't control what the Yankees or any other club chooses to offer," Greenberg told reporters, including Ed Price of AOL FanHouse. "We know that we're going to have to be aggressive financially. We're prepared to do that. But we've also got things to offer from a lifestyle standpoint."

Lee's Arkansas home isn't far from Arlington, and he recently told Jon Heyman of SI.com that he has enjoyed pitching for the Rangers. The feeling is mutual, especially now that Lee has dominated for three consecutive postseason starts. After Lee defeated the Yankees, Greenberg told Heyman he knows the left-hander is on the brink of a massive deal.

"He's going to make a tremendous amount of money," Greenberg said. "I hope he makes it with us."

It seems like his wife has a good amount of influence in where he decides, seeing as he's only a four hour drive away from his home in Arky. If the Yankees offer a substantial amount more (15-20 million total) than what Texas can offer, will the MLBPA force Lee to accept the deal, same way they did with Sabathia?

If that were the case, they would frown upon it. ...but they can't force him. CC wanted to play with the Yanks. Not like he got other close offers and there was another place he wanted to go to more.

CC actually didnt wanna play for the Yanks...I remember him wanting to go to SF or the Dodgers because hes from California. He signed with the Yankees because he has an option after this year or next to where he can bolt for free agency.....and he got a **** ton of money.

He may have wanted to but he liked the money more. I don't recall anyone offering close to what the Yankees offered. If they did then CC should opt out and go to one of those teams this offseason. I doubt that'll happen because only the Yankees will pay out that contract.

Id be all for the dodgers paying that contract....we need another pitcher worth the ****.

I believe he was willing to take less money to go to the west coast, but the MLBPA strong armed him to take the Yankees deal (as much as one would need to be strong armed to take $161 million) so he can set the market for the rest of the FA pitchers. They might do the same to Cliff Lee. I don't think anyone wants to end up being blackballed by the PA.

I'm a true yankees fan, through and through.
but I'm also the first to admit, I don't care all that much about baseball. I know when to run my mouth, and I have a ton of posts in this thread saying how much I love Swisher, Cano and Pettitte...
Jug's the most vocal yankees poster here, but we have plenty of "true" fans.

Can you find proof of that?

Besides, Lee is 32 years old. He won't be looking to reset the standard for being the highest paid pitcher. Sabathia will hold that for a while.
