Yankees, Mets Interested in Sabathia

According to the NY Daily News, the Yankees and Mets are interested in free agent pitcher CC Sabathia. The Yankees have reportedly made an offer for six years worth somewhere between 145 and 155 million dollars. At this point, the Mets' offer is unknown, but it is believed to be close to Johan Santana's offer, which is a lot for the Mets to take on in the midst of an economic crisis. Obviously, his agent will try to squeeze as much money as he can out of interested teams before he has Sabathia sign, but it will be interesting to see how long this plays out.

The Brewers offer is reportedly closer to 110 million dollars, so it looks like they will probably bow out of the race.
