“I can’t even wrap my head around that right now,” Sabathia said. “I’m just thinking about what I didn’t do to help us win. Maybe in the next couple days, next couple of weeks, I’ll think about that and see what happens.”I don't think there's any chance he doesn't opt-out. I mean, would you?
“I love it,” he said. “I’ve loved this since Day One of spring training since I got here. I’m just waiting to see what happens.”
So what will go into making that decision for the 19-game winner?
“A lot,” Sabathia said. “My family, everything that matters. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Even though he continues to seem to lean toward staying in the Bronx, Sabathia said that opting out is still a viable option for him.
“It’s there, so I just need to see,” he said. “But I can’t even begin to tell you what I’m thinking right now or what’s going to happen or anything like that.”
He knows the Yankees are going to want to resign him anyway so it's basically turning down free money if he didn't. He's still owed $92 million over the next four years in the Bronx, so I figure he'll get another 2 or 3 tacked on at the same rate.
