Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg sits down with Mike & Mike at Sundance Square to take time out from Super Bowl talk and discuss the upcoming season for the Texas Rangers and the back-and-forth comments with the New York Yankees this offseason.

PODCAST
Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg says the team wanted to keep pitcher Cliff Lee, but only on their terms. Greenberg also weighs in on Yankees president Randy Levine's recent comments about Greenberg.

"I thought what I said was awfully benign," Greenberg said when asked about his comments regarding Cliff Lee, which stirred up Yankees president Randy Levine. "It was much ado about nothing. There’s really no point in putting oxygen into an imaginary fire. I just explained what we were trying to do. It didn’t work out where he ended up with us, but at least he’s going to the NL where we don’t have to face him regularly."

Greenberg was asked about Levine's comments and he made it clear he's ready to move on.

"I thought he was kidding," Greenberg said. "I was at a speaking engagement Friday and someone emailed it to me and I thought he was kidding. What are you going to do? It was much ado about nothing and we’re just going to focus on what we need to do for our franchise and our fans and we move on."
