Another Dog in the Race
The Post is reporting that the Angels are preparing to make an offer to CC Sabbathia in the range of the Johan Santana deal, though not quite the $140M reportedly offered by the Yankees. No question the Yankees would raise their offer if need be, but one risks that CC says $137M is more than enough if I can play in Cali. The Angels have decided to make this offer because they have reached an impasse with Marky Tex, as they don't want to offer him more than 7 years (Boston doesn't want to offer more than 8, he's looking for 10). Will the Yanks lose CC to the Southern California Angels of Los Angeles Anaheim North Dakota? Only time will tell.
