The CC Sabathia free agent rollercoaster ride appears to be docking in the Bronx finally but it was an up and down and side to side ride.
The Brew Crew sends Jeff Suppan to the hill and lose 6-2, eliminating them from the playoffs. Sunday October 5th marks to first day the Sabathia free agent rollercaoster hit the tracks.
The Brew Crew make their first offer to Sabathia on November 3rd.
The Yankees make their first official offer on November 14th.
Doug Melvin comes out and says that the Yankees are overbidding for Sabathia.
One week later newly appointed Hal decided to come out and give CC a deadline, "We've made him an offer. It's not going to be there forever."
On December 1st the Brewers offered CC arbitration to ensure their draft pick compensation.
Sabathia and the Yankees meet on Sunday night to go over 'What it's like to play and live in New York'.
Early on Monday morning Buster Olney said the meeting with CC and the Yankees went GRRREAAAT.
Later on Monday reports came out from Los Angeles and the Dodgers GM Ned Colletti that Sabathia wanted to play for Dodgers.
Then yesterday reports out of San Francisco saying Sabathia had rejected the Yankees offer were blasted throughout the media.
And now you wake up this morning and find out that CC and the Yankees have essentially agreed to a 160 million dollar deal over 7 years.
