New York Yankees make their bid with a 7-year offer to pitcher Cliff Lee who was with the Texas Rangers last season and is a free agent. The Red Sox have not been to the playoffs the past two seasons. The Yankees originally offered Lee six years for $140 million and the offer is apparently being raised. The Boston Red Sox have signed free agent outfielder Carl Crawford to a 7-year $140 million deal. He played last season at Tampa Bay.
