The news is Cliff Lee will sign a YANKEE contract. Lee will help solidify the YANKEE rotation as the number two man behind CC Sabathia. It appears to be a six year contract which would mean Lee will finish his career as a YANKEE. Other great news which in essence were no brainers Derek Jeter the captain, and Mariano Rivera, both lifelong YANKEES who vowed neither would ever wear another teams uniform are both signed and ready to go for 28 in 11. Andy Pettitte still hasn't made a final decision on whether or not he will return for 2011. In my opinion, I think Andy will return for one more year and then positively pack it in and retire, win or lose. The goal is to have Lee signed before Christmas. That way the Lee family will have the merriest Christmas ever. Derek Jeter at 36 is highest paid shortstop in baseball, the best shortstop in baseball, the cover boy for Major League Baseball, a sure first round Hall of Fame inductee, the best defensive shortstop in baseball over the past decade and a half, and one of the great YANKEES of all time. Mariano Rivera has simply been the greatest relief pitcher in baseball history. What more can you say, that's all folks.
MERRY CHRISTMAS YANKEE FANS and WIN METHOD FANS.
