The Yankees, including general manager Brian Cashman, are flying to Arkansas to meet with Cliff Lee. MLB Trade Rumors first reported the trip, while Joel Sherman of the New York Post added the fact Cashman would be in the group.

The Yankees had already contacted Lee's agent minutes after the start of free agency on Sunday at midnight.

New York is seen as the favorite for the free-agent pitcher.

Sorry forgot him

Take hold I forgot him because we dont want him either. LOL My point was most players with the yankees are form their farm system. Yes we pay for great players .So can your team they CHOOSE not to.

You seemed to have forgotten A-Fraud on that list.  That's 7 and 7 is large part of a baseball team.  Of those 7, most were already all-stars on other teams.  You also proved what a farce it is by naming all the players they brought up.  Not only to they get to buy the best free agents but they also get to keep their own stars.  Most teams get to do NEITHER.  Spending nearly 3 X the league median is a HUGE advantage no matter how you slice it.

Money is not the ONLY factor but it is the biggest one. Exactly what I said, You act like there is no advantage. Read what  posted, you knob. If the truth hurts? Well, it is the truth. The softball team was an example not meant to be take seriously. The Mets example is just perfect because they sign the 2nd level guys the Yankees pass over. The Mets still don't take in the same kind of cash, even though it is up there in the highest. A 100 million Dollar advantage is still an advantage.

Come and visit the new Yankee Stadium any time. We would love to spit on you too. Only you deserve it. Go get an education, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Quit Crying Haters

I am a yankee fan.always have been always will be . You morons who cry like babies have no facts to back up your claims.

Home grown players, Jeter,Posada, Mo, Cano, Pettite, Gardner, Cirvelli, Nova, Hughes, joba, Thames, brackman, mitre, mosley,robertson,noesi,sanchez, miranda, corona, nunez, pena,golson, russo, curtis,mesa. albaladejo, garrison.

All home grown all on their 40 man roster. 6 guys burnett swisher granderson,tex,sabathia, marte were not brought into the bigs by the yankees. Big Deal all 6 not from the organization. Since you all cry look at your roster and see how many guys your farm system has on their roster. Or better yet on the 25 manroster. WE have 19 from our farm what do you criers have. So STFU when you open your mouthes.

We give away 80 mil a year to your owners who just pocket it. I've got a suggestion cry to them. ask why they dont want to compete with us. Its not that they cant all baseball owners are billionaires  they wont because they dont care about you the fan. At least my yankees care about their fans.

Your all a bunch of crying little girls. Another suggestion if you cant beat us join us at least you know your owners will care a put the best team possible out there

OK, since Tx has the deepest farm system in MLB, then Tx has no need for Cliff Lee. PS - hope you enjoyed the WS, it will be a while before the next one for you guys!!!! Sorry.
