Well this will probably be the last time I'll save this from purging, but anyone know the latest on where Sabbathia might go? --- Those who tell the truth shall die, Those who tell the truth shall live forever
The Yankees got Sabbathia for 161 million over 7 years. He also gets 9.5 million upfront before the season, this is part of his 23 million for this season.
Oh yeah don't forget A.J. Burnett only got 82.5 over 5 years.
That is a ton of money, but the Yankees did have it to spend.
Now if only the D-Backs would quit messing around and get Webb signed to an extension, otherwise he'll be in pinstripes soon too. That they can give Eric Byrnes a 30 million dollar deal, but not crank out Webb an extension is absurd. In June Webb and the team had an agreement for a 54M/3Yr extension to keep Webb in Arizona until 2013. The deal was pulled by the team, and now you can bet he's not taking a discount and will be testing the free agent market if they don't get something done soon.
