C.C. Sabathia, Part XVII

New, comments

From the L.A. Times:

The official said the Giants are interested in CC Sabathia, the ace pitcher who grew up in the Bay Area. The official would not confirm whether the Giants had offered a contract to Sabathia but said they would need to make other moves before they could sign him.

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?
