Other starters scramble for spots

For the top-tier starters remaining on the market — A.J. Burnett, Derek Lowe and Ben Sheets — the signing of CC Sabathia appears to have created some urgency.

The Yankees need at least one starter. The Mets need one. The Braves need one. Maybe the Red Sox do, maybe they don’t. There are only so many large-market teams willing to spend money.

The Yankees are, in Cash-speak, engaging all of them. Burnett is believed to have a five-year offer, Lowe a four-year proposal and Sheets a two-year offer. They definitely want one and could take two. That probably depends on what Andy Pettitte is willing to do.
