DALLAS (AP) - Rangers manager Ron Washington has a gut feeling that Cliff Lee will be staying in Texas.

The Rangers and New York Yankees spent Saturday waiting for a decision by the 32-year-old left-hander. Those teams are the two known bidders, although there may be others.

The Yankees offered Lee a seven-year contract after an opening proposal of six years for more than $137 million. Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg went to Arkansas on Thursday to present Lee with various offers.

Washington, speaking at his induction into the Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame, said: “I think everything that needs to be done has been done.”

His prediction for Lee? “He’ll be here.”
