According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Brewers GM Doug Melvin expects a counteroffer from C.C. Sabathia's agents. The Brewers have already reportedly offered five years and $100MM, so their ceiling must be a bit higher. Melvin doesn't expect the counteroffer until Sabathia receives bids from other teams.
We know the Brewers are a long shot to sign Sabathia, but it'd be interesting to see the ramifications. Would the Brewers have money for other improvements? What would the Yankees do?
