Indians to Try One More Time to Sign Sabathia

Thursday, June 26, 2008

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.

they are in a tough spot...I have a feeling this will not go ahead...I dont think the Indians will give him anymore as they dont believe that he is worth any more...although I think the whole equation does fit...if they are able to get him in...and Sabathia and his agent would know that....

Lets see...
