Yankees making a move on Sabathia

Interesting things going on:

Giants GM Brian Sabean said that CC Sabathia is a back-burner issue for his team. The Angels said roughly the same thing.

And it seems that tonight’s last-minute meeting that Brian Cashman dashed off to involves one CC Sabathia.

More to come as it becomes available.

UPDATE, 10:59 p.m.: I have been able to confirm that tonight’s meeting does in fact involve Sabathia. Newsday is reporting that the meeting is taking place in California, which could well be true. Working on confirmation of that.

On a private plane, one could get from Vegas to San Francisco pretty quickly. Something, it would seem, is going down. CC would not meet three times with the Yankees in a span of 48 hours otherwise.

UPDATE, 11:37 p.m.: We have confirmation. The meeting is in the San Francisco Bay Area and that means it likely includes Amber Sabathia.

The Yankees met with CC for two hours on Sunday night, an hour on Monday afternoon and now again tonight. 1 + 1 + 1 = six years and a whole lot of money. While all of these meetings could well lead to a deal, do not expect an official announcement before the Meetings end as there would have to be a physical.
