Cliff Lee lost twice in the World Series, but has become a proven playoff picture as he enters free agency for the first time.

"I like this team," Lee said. "It was a very fun team to be on and a very talented group of guys. I expect this team to do really good things next year. There is a lot of firsts for this organization. We were the second-best team in the big leagues. We can use this as motivation to do better next year."

"Cliff has earned the right to see who wants him and how badly," third baseman Michael Young said. "As a teammate and a friend, I'm going to back him no matter what he does. But it goes without saying, we want him here."

The Rangers understand they are not going to get a quick deal done with Lee.

"I'm going to spend some time with my family and relax," Lee said. "That stuff will take care of itself."

"Whenever there's an attractive player, the Yankees are part of the equation," Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg said. "It's a reality of the industry."

Quick Deal Not Expected For Lee

Quote:
Teams have already expressed interest in Cliff Lee, but the free-agent pitcher's agent says a quick resolution isn't expected.

"We are in the infancy stages," Lee's agent Darek Braunecker said.

Braunecker said that he heard from "multiple" teams on Sunday when free agency began, but declined to go into specifics.
