For whatever it's worth, Joel Sherman believes the Yankees will soon make an offer to CC Sabathia worth $150 million over six years. A friend of Sabathia's said:
He is mature enough and realistic enough to know that the Yankees might not make it close. And if it is not close - no matter how much he likes the West Coast and likes hitting - he is not going to walk away from $25 million. This is not rocket science. It is about how much more the Yanks New Yorkwill spend than anybody else.
- Scott Boras brushed aside LA's three-year, $60 million offer to Manny Ramirez, saying he would take 'serious offers' on Friday. If it was any other agent, I'd say he was overplaying his hand.
