Growing Tired of CC
I've got to admit, I'm kind of growing tired, not to mention wary of one Mr. CC Sabbathia. First we hear how he doesn't want this to be a drawn out process and how there will be no tours, just offers and a decision. Then he gets a $140M offer, with no other suitors in sight, and he's yet to make a decision. Maybe it's his agent's fault, but I'm starting to worry that this guy has drama queen written all over him. Think about it, it's kind of like when your girlfriend says don't make a big deal about my birthday, then you don't, then she never speaks to you again. If you don't want it to be a long, drawn out process, then make a decision already. Even if you simply don't want to pitch in New York, just say, thanks but no thanks, and then look for a smaller deal elsewhere. If my impression is correct, that CC is the type of guy who needs attention, is high maintenance, says one thing and means another, then New York is not going to suit him anyway. We cannibalize players like that in this town. Why do you think A-Rod is such a head case here? I've heard mostly good things about CC so I'd like to think I'm wrong, but if I'm not, I'm going to go ahead and say I called it.
