Yankees to Nab Sabathia
Word has it that the New York Yankees have agreed to sign ace pitcher
to a $160 million, seven-year deal. This comes just a day after the Mets signed star closer Francisco Rodriguez to a three-year deal.
While this signing clearly boosts the Yankees, the Bombers have enough cracks in the armor to proclaim them world champions just yet. With word that Pettitte may not resign and with Mussina retiring, the pitching staff is weak.
However, there is word that the Yankees are also interested in Ben Sheets AND A.J. Burnett. If the Yankees were able to grab both of them, then they have a very good pitching staff, which could blow Boston out of the water.
The next question is if the Yankees are going to make a serious play towards Manny Ramirez, which would not only bloat their budget, but signed in tandem with three very good pitchers, would probably give them the AL East title in 2009.
