First of all, Brad I love the new digs. I think there's a "lipstick on a pig" joke in here somewhere, but I'll let it lie.
The NY Post would have you believe that the Brewers are leading the CC chase:
Prior to Yankee GM Brian Cashman's meeting with CC Sabathia yesterday in Las Vegas, there was a feeling in the baseball universe the stud free-agent lefty would eventually re-sign with the Brewers.
I don't know where the baseball universe has its headquarters, but it's probably housed somewhere in New Yankee Stadium. Or in the US Bank Building in Milwaukee next to Commissioner Selig's office.
Now, there is talk of the Brewers, who have offered five years for $100 million, exploring ways to entice the 28-year-old Sabathia, who went 11-2 with a 1.65 ERA in 17 starts after being acquired from the Indians.
According to a source who has talked to the Brewers, the club has enough money to sweeten the pot and offer "contract flexibility" that could include an opt-out clause after three seasons.
I'm still not buying it. Amber has never said that she wants to be in Milwaukee.
