From the L.A. Times:
While I'm not a big fan of committing $120M over six seasons to another pitcher, if the math is something like...:
$120M (Sabathia joining the team)
$44M (Rowand going away)
Sabathia for 6 years/$76M!
...I could be interested. Fuzzy math, sure. But I'm worried that this will be the last year that Rowand's contract is tradable. Other than Rowand, there isn't a tradable player whose salary can help make room for Sabathia's salary.
Or, and I hate to even bring this up, but maybe I shouldn't pay attention to every stray rumor from the Winter Meetings.
Nah. Where's the fun in being prudent and respectable?
