Joel Sherman of the New York Post offers a dream rotation for the New York Yankees that includes CC Sabathia, Derek Lowe or A.J. Burnett, Chien-Ming Wang, Joba Chamberlain and Andy Pettitte.
Sherman acknowledges Sabathia’s strong perference to stay on the West Coast, but also notes that the Angels and Dodgers may end up having a lot of their available payroll tied up in contracts for Mark Teixeira and Manny Ramirez, respectively. Along that same line of thinking, Barry Zito’s contract in San Francisco may keep the Giants from getting too involved in the bidding for Sabathia’s services.
The article also puts Derek Lowe at the top of the Red Sox’ list of desired free agents.
