This large gentleman you see above is on the verge of signing the richest contract in baseball history. Do you even have to ask with which team? The Yankees are giving Sabathia a reported seven year, $160million deal.
In his past, “Sabathia won the 2007 American League Cy Young award while with the Indians and has a career record of 117-73 over eight major league seasons.”
This story is Good News for:
1. George Steinbrenner, because with the addition of Sabathia he may yet live to see another Yankee World Series title.
2. Restauranteurs, because with $160million of disposable income, you don’t think CC is going to be spending some of that out to eat?
