Lee's Agent In Touch With Yankees

Left to right: Braunecker, Lee, and friend
Via this tweet by ESPN's Buster Olney, Cliff Lee's agent, Darek Braunecker has been in touch with the Yankees this morning. No word on any agreement yet as "the process is on-going" according to the agent. 

What this means at least, is that the Yankees are still very much alive in the Lee sweepstakes. Olney also tweeted here that the Rangers are "moving aggressively" to acquire Adrian Beltre, who has turned down offers from the Red Sox and Oakland A's. Olney believes, as do I, that the move on Beltre may be the Rangers' Plan B if Cliff Lee opts for the Bombers. There were a lot of rumblings within the Rangers organization this weekend that they were feeling good about their chances of Lee coming back; perhaps this latest development speaks otherwise.

Stay tuned...
