Several different news outlets are reporting that the Indians are going to try one last time to sign CC Sabathia. He has said that he won't talk about a contract during the season. Negotiations ended in February, Sabathia turned down a 4yr deal, somewhere in the high 60's, low 70's million dollar range. The Indians are not a team likely to cut loose with Johan Santana kind of coin so this may go nowhere unless they raise their offer considerably. There are a number of teams said to be interested in him, notably the Angels and the Cubs.
