Both Ken Rosenthal and Joel Sherman reported tonight that the Yankees will not go to 7 years with Cliff Lee. Sherman added that they would go to six to get the deal done.

I guess I am glad to hear they won’t go to 7, but 6 is way too many in my book. I don’t really like the idea of even going to five years, but with the news that Andy Pettitte is leaning towards retirement, the Yankees really need to get Cliff Lee to come to the Bronx. I just hope they do it without guaranteeing a sixth year.
