Rangers headed back to Arkansas
The Rangers are sending two key members of their organization to meet with Cliff Lee and his agent, Darek Braunecker.
Chuck Greenberg is one. He is the club’s Chief Executive Officer and the one who controls the money.
Thad Levine is the other. He is the Rangers assistant general manager who does all their contracts.
When it comes to player contracts, these are the two Rangers financial heavyweights.
The Rangers have asked Braunecker to tell them what it will take to sign Lee. Greenberg and Levine aren’t going up to Arkansas to talk about the weather in Texas or the close proximity of Little Rock to Arlington.
They are going to try and make a deal.
