What a shock! The Mets aren’t interested in having two $100 million starting pitchers on the team. Marty Noble at MLB.com confirms that the Mets won’t be offering CC Sabathia a contract.
The word in the press is that the Yankees already offered Sabathia 6-years/$140 million. And I’m sure the Yankees will go as high as it takes to get Sabathia.
The Mets going after Sabathia never made sense from the beginning. With holes in the outfield, bullpen, and rotation, there’s no room for another $100 million contract on this team.
It’s a nice dream to think of Johan Santana and Sabathia pitching back-to-back days all season, but it’s not happening.
