Is Lee weighing various Yankee offers? Time vs. $$$?

MBLTR reports:

  • The Yankees have presented Lee with an assortment of contract choices, writes Joel Sherman.  He believes the bids are something like five years for $125MM ($25MM per), six years for $144MM ($24MM per), and seven years for $161MM ($23MM per). 
  • The Rangers requested the Arkansas meeting and plan to increase their offer beyond five years, tweets Rosenthal.  The Rangers are “adding any perk necessary” to please Lee and his family, tweets Yahoo’s Steve Henson.
  • Crasnick reports that the Yankees’ new seven-year offer has a lower average annual value than the $23.3MM of their previous one.  So this offer could be worth less than Sabathia’s contract.
  • If so, it’s now up to Lee. Money upfront vs. time?
