This news is a couple of days old, but I wanted to comment on it.
Mark Feinsand of the Daily News writes that he believes the Angels are bluffing on their contract offer to CC Sabathia.
Feinsand writes that it’s been 12 (now 14) days since the offer was made and no one else has come remotely close. It is believes Sabathia prefers the west coast (we already knew that, didn’t we), and may settle for less money if it comes to that.
Again, here we see what normally happens through the Hot Stove League. A lot of rumors, a lot of money, many years, and free agent courting (a la LeBron James)
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I expect to see some actual movement before the Winter Meetings start on December 8.
