Brian Cashman will meet with CC Sabathia to try and sign the lefty before the Winter Meetings. Meanwhile, A.J. Burnett is dancing with the Braves and Cashman met with Scott Boras.
Now the latest news is that the Red Sox want to meet with CC. Of course they do, as that will torture the Yankees. They’ll try and get Sabathia to wait in the hopes that one of the West Coast teams will get up the courage to make him an offer. There is little chance Boston would actually want to sign Sabathia.
Cashman would try the same thing to Theo Epstein if the roles were reversed. It’s what these guys do.
