Cool! Glad to see a Tribe pitcher getting some love. Too bad about the postseason job, but oh well.

What I'll be curious to see is if this affects the effort to re-sign him this offseason.

I believe Sabathia's current contract awards him some incentive money in the case that he wins a Cy Young. Good for him.

I think he stays. He and Fausto make a potent twosome and that lineup can win ballgames. I don't think Sabathia bolts after coming within a game of making the World Series.

He is signed for next year but they are trying to ink him to a long-term extension. I wonder if that doesn't happen, will they trade him?

From the article, it looks like Sabathia was the only one of the top 3 that didn't have an incentive clause. I wouldn't worry about losing him until you see a local media report to the effect: 'An source close to the negotiations leaked that Sabathia has turned down the Indians offer of 5 years, $85 million.'

You'd think he'd take Carlos Zambrano money to make the 2008 injury risk go away, unless there is something behind-the-scenes making him want to leave town. That said, I can't see how management would sell not re-signing C.C. to the local fan base.

But if worse comes to worst, I think the White Sox have a surplus of young, inexpensive starter candidates, I bet they'd love to have Sabathia to match with Buehrle and Garland.

Considering his age and he is left handed, he is going to want between Zito money and the expected Santana money, which would put him in the 6/$126 region. Look at what mediocre pitchers received last season as free agents. Someone will give him far greater the 5/85 on the marketplace.

I would love to keep him after next year but that is too much money for the Tribe. They have to use the Oakland model and hope to make it brfore the talent leaves for greener pastures.

I'd be curious to know where the author got his initial survey data from. And put me down as another yes, btw.
