The Yankees have made their move on one Charles Constantine Sabathia* as they have offered a contract of 6 years and $140 million. This is slightly larger than the contract the Mets offered Santana last year. First offers tend to not get accepted, so I would expect those 140 millions to be met with a few more millions to make it a lot more millions than I'll ever see. I don't see another team ponying up the money, because not too many other teams with money are that desperate. The Cubs, Red Sox, Angels, Dodgers don't need pitching that badly, and the Angels and Dodgers are already working on big money contracts for free agents of their own while the Cubs are working on possibly signing the Big Unit and are still in the Peavy sweepstakes. However, the Dodgers have reportedly withdrawn their offer to Manny though they are still negotiating with him. The deal was for 2 years at $45 million with an option year for $15 million. The Red Sox are oddly quiet though they tend to be that way when plotting their communist agenda. Theo Epstein has reportedly been in meetings with mother Russia, which has been taking away from his trying to sign Varitek to a deal. In other news, Pettitte is still a free agent.
