Where Will C.C. Sabathia Land?

C.C. Sabathia’s opt-out clause has become well known around the baseball world.  Will he or won’t he, is the question remaining.  What the answer to that question is could impact not only the New York Yankees but the rest of Major League Baseball.  If Sabathia elects to opt-out of his deal, he will be free to sign elsewhere.  Dan Cavender, the new editor of FanSided’s Angels blog Halo Hangout, has compiled a list of where that elsewhere could be.

The first name on Dan’s list is a team that jumped out to me as possible Sabathia suitors.  The Boston Red Sox need some rotation assistance, and who better to call on than the ace of your division rival?  The Red Sox will certainly be looking to make a splash after their tumultuous 2011, and if Sabathia’s out there, Boston could try and lure in the lefty.

Beyond the Red Sox, Dan proceeds to make cases for several intriguing clubs, including Sabathia’s former teams, the Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians.  Also in Dan’s what-if Sabathia scenarios are the Cubs, Dodgers, Phillies, Nationals and of course the Angels.  The Kansas City Royals even get a mention.

    After the Carl Crawford contract, I can’t see Boston going after Sabathia. If CC does go anywhere else. I think the Angels are the team. The new GM is going to want to make a money splash to show the Angels actually have money. Sabathia loves the West Coast, which is why Cashman included the option to opt out, so it would not surprise me.

    @arth65456 I’m sure Dan would love it if you were right

    @blaineblontz because that is where ultimately I see him going and he talked to them and San Fran in 2009 so i wouldnt rule it out. Don’t rule out the Nats and their money either
