Sabathia to the Yanks, say it aint so…

sabathiaWhy are you surprised? The Yankess buy another high-profile free agent, no shocker here. Did some of us think he would stay West Coast? Sure, I thought he was going to the Angels without question. But once again, the Yankees and their demon leader, Steinbrenner (no disrespect by the way), offer a guy so much money that no one can complete. And how important was it to C.C. to play in Cali? Apparently not that important. The Yankees had an offer on the table of somewhere around $140 million and C.C. and his agent contemplated with C.C. saying that “he wasn’t sure about playing in New York”. Then, the Yankees outbid themselves (intelligent right?) by offering another year to C.C. and giving him a contract of $160 million. Hmm, shall we think? Was C.C. chasing the money? Ummm, I think so. “Well honey we were going to go live in sunny California but for $160 mil…we’ll be looking for private schools in New York”.

I’m a little irritated because its the Yankees being the Yankees and I’m an O’s fan (sad I know). But I am not surprised and I cannot honestly say that I thought the Yankees wouldn’t some how pull this out. I had just hoped that Sabathia went and played for Mike Sciosca in his home state back in California. Well, actually, I wanted him to come play in Baltimore but I just don’t think that would have worked out….
