Ken Davidoff wrote yesterday:
According to a person in the Yankees’ loop, the team is reluctant to raise its offer to C.C. Sabathia, even if such hesitancy causes him to sign with the Angels.
Something has changed in the last 24 hours, because Davidoff now writes:
The majority of their decision-makers support the idea of going higher for the coveted lefthander, a person familiar with the situation said yesterday.
Davidoff wonders if the Yankees might go to $150MM over six years if the Angels offer $130MM over six. It doesn’t appear that the Angels have made an offer yet. Sabathia’s agent Greg Genske is apparently shutting things down for the weekend.
