C.C. Sabathia Signs With the Yankees

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst IDecember 10, 2008

According to sources from the New York Post, free agent pitcher C.C. Sabathia has agreed to a deal that will send him to the New York Yankees.

It is reported the contract he will receive will be the highest paid deal ever given to a pitcher. The numbers are estimated at seven years and worth over $160 million. It is expected that the official announcement of this deal will come later today.

I guess all that talk about wanting to play in the NL and wanting to be on the West Coast was just talk. Apparently money can buy happiness for C.C. Sabathia.
