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.

"Because you have an advantage of having a high revenue stream, so the owner can sign anybody he wants"

OK genius, then please explain the Mets, who have the 2nd highest payroll in MLB and a significant revenue stream, expensive free agents, etc. but nothing to show for it???? If money were the only factor then the Mets should be contenders. YankMe goes both ways. I bet your softball team s*cks too!!!!

Hardcore 69, you may be upset, but when you post the words you do,  you sound like an ignorant hick - don't like that description? That's how it comes across when you generalize  Yankee fans that way.........fact of the matter is the Yankees are playing within the guidelines. It may not be fair, but that's for MLB to change the rules.

I will let you Yankee fans in on a little secret. Why does everybody hate the Yankees? Because you have an advantage of having a high revenue stream, so the owner can sign anybody he wants. You sit back and say there is no advantage. You want the be the Harlem Globetrotters of MLB. Everybody else has to build a core and trade at the last minute to complete for one year (like the Rangers). You guys sit back and cherry pick every team every year. Is this fair? no. You have the advantage. Not because your owner will spend money but because you make more of it to spend. When the Yankees make 300 million for the season and the Royals maybe 50 million how can they compete? They can't. So don't act like you don't have an advantage when you do. You keep Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Robinson Cano, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettite, and Phillips Hughes because you don't get cherry picked by a bigger fish. You are the bigger fish and can keep your players and add every other player you want. I will give it to you a simple way for you to understand. Lets play softball for a year and see how everybody plays. Then the next year I get to pick the 10 players before you pick one. Then my team kills everyone else and I try to talk BS to you. You will say I have an advantage, you would be right. So, what did you Yankee fans learn? You have an advantage over everyone. You act like you don't and that is why everybody trys to talk BS to you. One more thing, Do you know Yankee is one letter away from YankMe? So YankMe! You know you want to.

Did anyone really think the Yanks wouldn't try to get Lee? They will probably trade for Fielder to be their DH too. Oh well when they lose in the playoffs again all will be right with the world.
