"LAS VEGAS -- CC Sabathia will be a New York Yankee.
The Yankees reached a preliminary agreement with Sabathia on Wednesday, following an in-person meeting between general manager Brian Cashman and Sabathia in California, sources with knowledge of the deal told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.
A source told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark there are "zero major roadblocks" that would prevent the Yankees from finalizing an agreement with the 28-year-old left-hander."
As a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan, this news is rather disheartening. I wish Sabathia would have stayed on the west coast, as he seems to love SoCal so much. Bah! :Z
