By now you’ve heard assorted rumors that CC Sabathia loves California. He loves to hit. He loves Laverne & Shirley.
“We’ve heard all that, too,” agent Greg Genske told me a few minutes ago. “All I can tell you is that CC is going to have an open mind about every team. He’ll listen to everybody.”
The Brewers have made Sabathia an offer and they gave exclusive negotiating rights until Nov. 14. But be assured that Sabathia will enter the market and see how much love there is out there for him.
Genske also said this process will not be drawn out. Sabathia wants to get offers and make a decision. There will be no tour of assorted cities and getting wined and dined.
