Cliff Lee woke up this morning and grabbed a cup of coffee – possibly to help mend his decision making process. And if he was looking for a sign, he sure found one! Sources from Yahoo Sports have claimed that Cliff Lee was served a hot mocha drink this morning with a letter “T” written in some sort of syrup floating at the top of the drink.
A barista from a coffee house called Boulevard Bread Company took the blame for trying to convince Lee to stick around. Lee’s reaction was said to have been a “smile and head nod” as the lefty sipped his morning cup of caffeine.
Each team both the Yankees and Rangers have offered Lee more than $20 million in their respective deals. A decision of where the ace will land is expected as early as today. Last night, MLB.com broke to the media that the Nationals are now out of the Cliff Lee sweepstakes leaving the Yanks and Rangers still as the front runners.
