Yankees Make CC a BIG Offer

And not that it's a bad thing, but we are officially outbid forever on C.C. Sabathia. The New York Yankees have offered 6 years and 140 million  (Johan Santana currently makes 137.5)  to C.C. This would make him the highest paid pitcher ever. We pretty much can consider ourselves out of the running.

C.C. is going to follow that ridiculous amount of money (he'd be foolish not to) and be great for probably a couple years, and then maybe he'll fall victim to the Bartolo syndrome (but C.C. is taller and has always been this large unlike Bartolo, so we'll see).

Apparently the Yanks are also eyeing/sending offers to Burnett and Lowe... which means Peavy is ours for the taking? trading?  Which in the end just leaves more potential money for Tex. I personally for one have never liked that the Yankees can just sign whichever free agent they want, but that's a much larger issue.

Call me cautiously optimistic, but I think we can grab both Peavy and Tex with the pieces falling as they are right now.  And all this seems to be able to be done without too much harm to our spending or our farm system. Here's hoping.
