After the performance Rangers ace Cliff Lee put out yesterday versus the Rays, it is beginning to look like Arlington may be where Lee stays come 2011. It's no secret that the Yankees want Cliff Lee, and will pay for him, but if the Rangers keep winning it will become increasingly difficult for Lee to just pick up and move.
That being said, the Yankees are looking for another starting pitcher and sources say they may turn to former Yankee Ted Lilly. Lilly may resign with the Dodgers after this season, but questions about available funds may deter that effort.
Lilly was lights out after being traded from the Cubs, going 7-4 with a 3.52 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. He finished the season with 10 wins, his eighth straight season with at least ten wins or more.
Lilly should command a deal in the 10-12 million dollar range, which if spread out over a three year period, could prove to be a nice steal for a club.
