C.C. Sabathia Unaffected By Cliff Lee

Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia has the ability to opt out of the remaining four years and $92MM remaining on his contract after the 2011 season.  It's been suggested that a Cliff Lee megadeal could prompt Sabathia to bail in search of more money or years, but he told George King of the New York Post, "It has no effect on me at all."  But as Joe Pawlikowski of River Ave. Blues points out, Sabathia did not directly slam the door on the opt-out.
