Are The Mets Setting Their Sights On C.C. Sabathia?
There was interesting article this morning in the Record by Bob Klapisch, who suggests that their may be full-fledged bidding war between the Mets and Yankees for the services of C.C. Sabathia,
The Yankees and Mets worlds are about to collide over their competition for CC Sabathia.
The prize? CC Sabathia, who despite getting lit up by the Phillies on Thursday night is still the medicine both teams need to rebuild their respective pitching staffs.
The ammunition? Dollars. Millions. Nothing short of a blank check to the pitcher who led the majors in innings pitched (253) and complete games (10).
Cashman and Minaya figure to empty the tank in their pursuit of the free-agent-to-be. Most baseball people believe Sabathia, a native of Vallejo, Calif., is likely to remain on the West Coast. But there’s nothing like a seven-year, $150 million contract offer to change one’s thinking. The bidding war is indeed headed for nuclear territory – money, after all, it’s all the Yankees and Mets really have to offer.
