I knew there was some rumor floating around when my iPhone suddenly lit up with a dozen e-mails. Yep. Somebody reported that CC Sabathia turned down the Yankees. It’s not true.

Here is what is known for sure on CC:

Yankees: Have an offer on the table. Nothing has changed.

Brewers: Have an offer on the table. Contrary to some reports, they have not raised it. Sabathia did not bother to hang around Vegas yesterday to meet with them. He sent his agents.

Red Sox: Have met with Sabathia and possibly have made an offer. Terry Francona laughed out loud when asked about the idea of a long-term deal. File this under the Red Sox making trouble.

Angels: They have prioritized Mark Teixeira but could make Sabathia an offer if only to drive the Teixeira process. Teixeira, according to Torii Hunter, is having trouble sleeping and wants to ake a decision soon.

Giants: Depending what you want to believe, they could be in the mix.

It’s going to be a long week.
