CC Sabathia told Ned Colletti on Sunday night that he wanted to play for the Dodgers. But in the time since then, he asked for another meeting with the Yankees, which was held today. And Colletti has admitted that signing the left-hander is only “a possibility” and that no offer has been made.
All things being equal, it appears Sabathia would prefer to play on the West Coast. That only makes sense since given that he is from there, his family lives there and he has purchased land on which to build a home in Orange County.
But will all things be equal? The Yankees have the resources to make sure that is not the case.
