Source: Sabathia Likes Dodgers

According to a source close to C.C. Sabathia, Sabathia has enjoyed playing in the National League over the past couple of months and would like to stay in the NL in the future. He is hitting well for a pitcher and is pitching himself into the Cy Young race. The Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, Angels, and Cardinals are four of many teams expected to make a play for Sabathia, but the source has informed me that he prefers the Dodgers. He would be moving close to home while staying in the National League, two things he would like to do.

However, owner Frank McCourt has spent a lot of money on a lot of players who have been unsuccessful, so he may be hesitant to take a chance on Sabathia, especially with Manny Ramirez eligible for free agency.

Red Sox Sign Epstein: The Red Sox have agreed to a contract extension with General Manager Theo Epstein. Theo Epstein is one of the best GMs in baseball, having won two World Series for the Red Sox. He has made great draft picks, as well as great trades, along with free agent signings, if necessary. Epstein is young, and is still learning about the game he has nearly mastered. His assistants, Jed Hoyer and Ben Cherington, will likely be GMs elsewhere in the near future.
