Greenberg said he didn’t think it was appropriate to discuss specifics, but he did say the Rangers presented multiple offers, with a substantial committment in years and dollars.
The Rangers said the Red Sox signing of Carl Crawford was one of the main reasons they made the trip to Arkansas today..
Greenberg said he felt good about the discussions and that the Rangers are not going to give Lee a timetable to make a decision on their offer.
