BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS TO TO REPLACE CARL PAVANO ON THE DL:

Yankees intend to blow Sabathia away (SI: Fan Nation, 11/13/08)

CC Sabathia does not need the Yankees to flirt with him. He knows their intentions already. All things being equal, Sabathia wants to go home to California and play in the NL, where he can hit. But as a friend of Sabathia's said yesterday, "he is mature enough and realistic enough to know that the Yankees might not make it close. And if it is not close - no matter how much he likes the West Coast and likes hitting - he is not going to walk away from $25 million. This is not rocket science. It is about how much more the Yanks will spend than anybody else."

For Red Sox fans, the prospect of the Yankees tying up $50 million a year in CC and Manny is almost too good to be true.
