No way Profar would be in that trade. Olt might be due to the fact that Lee has several years left on his contract. Lee contract details: 12/14/10: Signed a five-year, $120 million contract with a club option for 2016. [strike]2011: $11 million[/strike] [strike]2012: $21.5 million[/strike] 2012: $10Mish for the remainder of the season? 2013: $25 million 2014: $25 million 2015: $25 million 2016: $27.5 million club option ($12.5 million buyout) So, if we cut ties with Lee after 2015. We will get 3 1/2 season and 4 post seasons with a clear cut Ace for about $92.5 million. Keep in mind that we originally offered Lee 6 years $138M. We missed 1 1/2 years, but we also get a $46M discount over the entire value of what that contract would have been. Plus, we still made it to the World Series without Lee. Let me say this too. Lee brought a calming presents to the Rangers when he was traded here. We had a similar presents (though probably not as good as Lee) in Colby Lewis. Now, we don't have him either. Our rotation is VERY young with the most experienced veteran starter being Scott Feldman. (besides Oswalt, but he just doesn't come off as the leader type) There is a big value in having someone like Cliff on the staff. A leader for the younger guys to lean on and talk too. He provided that in 2010. I have no issue with him providing it again for the next four post seasons. If Texas wants to get back to the World Series, it will probably take someone like Cliff to help get the pitching staff there. Especially with Colby Lewis gone now.
