Nolan Ryan Talks About Cliff Lee

Nolan Ryan spoke to the media today at the Winter Meetings:

— He still expects Yankees to be the highest bidder

—  Ryan said the the Rangers have not yet made an offer, the discussions so far have been preliminary

—  The Rangers feel that Lee and his agent Darek Braunecker are still trying to guage how many teams are really interested in Lee

I’ve been preparing all along for Lee to sign with the Yankees. I really believe The Evil Empire will money whip him something fierce. I think if all things were equal he’d prefer to stay in Texas though. If Nolan and JD somehow pull this one off and sign Lee away from the Yankees it would be awesome.
