Yanks Up Ante On Lee Offer?

In a report today by Tom Gatto of the Sporting News, the Yankees have reportedly offered "The Assassin" aka Cliff Lee a 6-year, $140 million deal according to an industry source. Just days ago, it was reported that the Yankees were looking at a 6-year, $120 million pay out for Lee.

If the industry source is correct, the deal would pay Lee $23.3 million per, slightly trumping CC Sabathia's pay at $23 million, and making him the highest paid pitcher in baseball. He's supposedly holding out on the offer, as he's looking for a 7-year deal.

Stay tuned...
