If the Angels do deliver a competitive offer to CC Sabathia, the Yankees must decide whether to raise their own bid for him. They are debating that issue internally, but the majority of their decision-makers support the idea of going higher for the coveted lefthander, a person familiar with the situation said yesterday.Maybe the Angels are more serious about signing Sabathia than the Yankees had thought, and they may feel the only chance they have to sign him is by raising their offer. Davidoff speculates something about $150 for six years.
I'd expect things to really start to heat up after Thanksgiving with CC. Next week could be a very busy week.
