Yankees Pick Up Sabathia
Not literally, of course. Dude is huge.
The Yankees and C.C. Sabathia agreed this week to a 7-year, $161 million contract. I had heard that the Brewers’ offer was actually more per year but for a fewer number of years. Even so, this contract is the richest ever given to a pitcher. Opening up new Yankee stadium has to be an exciting prospect, and those pinstripes are so slimming.
