Sabathia is a Yankee - MERGED

Recommended Posts

Anybody that couldn't see that CC's desire to play on the west coast was a ploy set by his agent to drive his price up is rediculous.

7 years/160mill?

Did we seriously just add another year and 20 million to an offer that was already 40 mill more than the next team?

Embarrassing. :bag:

Another pitcher who can't get it done in the Postseason. Joy.

Ok, I get it. **** the entire second half...no, more than the second half...of COMPLETE DOMINATION he had last year that singlehandedly carried the Brewers to the playoffs. **** the last game of the season that basically was a playoff game. Let's just look at his FIVE postseason games. Smart.

The ass goblins out here are claiming Artie the Burrito man Moreno was willing to go 140. Who knows how true that is. We weren't dealing with Boras here, so it doesn't quite make you want to take a shower after reading the claims.

Yankees needed a dominant lefty.

Yes they did.

I know its a lot of money but the Yankees had to get him, flaws and all. He is going to be a great pitcher in NY. Until his back problems start from being so fat and carrying the team on his back.

I know this sounds stupid, specially considering our economy. But the Yankees can afford to piss away 160 million. They dropped a ton of money off the payroll from last year.

Yep.... and now they are building it back up.

And going into a new stadium that will be sold out for 81+ games at ridiculous prices plus Im sure YES will be increasing their carriage fees. Their advertising probably wont be hurt either. Yankees can spend all they want. They'll make it back.

I can't wait to hear what Gammons says about this.

"Ultimately Theo Epstein thought he had a pretty good rotation and didn't want CC because he thought his pitchers were better."

Per WFAN through Gordon Edes of Yahoo the contract has an opt-out clause after 3 years.

Don't know what to think about this yet.

LAS VEGAS – Baseball’s perennial high-rollers, the New York Yankees, scored the biggest coup of the winter meetings when CC Sabathia reached preliminary agreement on a deal that will pay him $161 million over the next seven years.

The deal, according to a source close to negotiations, gives Sabathia the right to opt out of the contract after the first three years of the contract, by which time he will have been paid $69 million. Sabathia had insisted on the clause to satisfy concerns he had about playing in New York.

There has been no official confirmation of the deal. An official announcement is not expected until after Sabathia passes a physical, which he is expected to undergo in New York within the next couple of days.

The New York Post was the first to report that Yankees GM Brian Cashman got his man after visiting Sabathia and his wife, Amber, in San Francisco, the third straight day Cashman had met with the 28-year-old left-hander.

Sabathia’s coming to terms could signal the start of some serious dealing the next several day, with the Yankees also heavily in the market for at least one more free-agent starter from the top-tier list of A.J. Burnett, Derek Lowe and Ben Sheets. The Yankees are facing strong competition from Atlanta for Burnett, while the Phillies and possibly the Red Sox remain players for Lowe.

Sabathia now tops a rotation that will also have Chien-Ming Wang back from injury and the emerging Joba Chamberlain. The Yankees also are trying to persuade veteran Andy Pettitte to come back for another year.

And while the Yankees’ primary focuse remains pitching, there is the possibility that Cashman, flush with cash, could also pose a run at Mark Teixeira, though the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels are the front-runners for the switch-hitting first baseman.

The Yankees’ offer – with Cashman adding a year and $20 million to the original six-year, $140 million proposal the Bombers made weeks ago – eroded whatever preference Sabathia had to remain on the West Coast. With the Yankees having missed the playoffs for the first time after 13 straight appearances, Cashman was under pressure to show that he could still deliver the biggest prize on the market.

Another factor was that no West Coast team had made Sabathia an offer, a fact that must have weighed on him as the Yankees made their full-court press. The Milwaukee Brewers, who Sabathia led to the playoffs after a mid-season trade from the Cleveland Indians, were the only other team to make him an offer.

And the Yankees and Mets have the nerve to ask New York City for more money for their stadiums.

So he is guaranteed for 3 years. That's fine. If he flops he will want to leave NY.

I'm not so sure. If he flops then where else will he get $20+ million?

Gm has no shame in asking us for tax money to bail them out.

Yankees, Mets Stadium Projects Get More Tax-Exempt Bonds

http://gothamist.com/2008/12/09/city_oks_300_million_in_new_bonds_f.php

Sure, the city is facing lower tax revenues and will cut from city agencies' budgets. But when the Yankees and Mets need additional tax-exempt bonds to complete their new stadiums, that's okay!

The NY Times reports, "The city also plans to issue $341.2 million in additional tax-exempt bonds on behalf of the Yankees and Mets to complete the stadiums, whose combined cost is about $2.2 billion. The teams are responsible for paying off the bonds, but they pay tens of millions of dollars less in interest because payments to bondholders are exempt from city, state and federal taxes."

The teams need the additional bonds because costs have gone up. And since the city and state are paying for hundreds of millions in infrastructure ("parks, garage and transportation improvements"), it turns out, unsurprisingly, that those infrastructure costs have gone up, too. The Independent Budget Office tells the Times, "The additional costs that have emerged make it quite likely that that the city

I don't like the deal

Too much money for a one guy.....I do think a weight clause will be in there

What kind of weight clause?? Is he being paid by the pound. I am guessing he is about 300 so he is getting over $500,000 per pound. Good deal.

Any photoshops of CC in stripes?

I'd give it a shot, but the pinstripes maybe tough. Maybe I can find a Wells photo to use.
