Offer to Sabathia on the table

This from Paul Hoynes:

Shapiro being tight-lipped as usual.  What are the odds C.C. would sign a hometown "discount" contract like Jake Peavy ?

My wag is that he was offered a 4 year deal for between $15-17 mil./year, maybe with incentives for wins, innings pitched, Cy Young, etc, and possibly with a club option for a 5th and 6th year.

I maintain my earlier stance that if I were the Indians mgt., and he maintained his insistence of exploring the free agent market, that I'd trade him before the mid point of the 2008 season.  No way the Tribe can afford to not get anything in return ala Albert Belle and Manny Ramirez.

I just hope it doesn't come down to that ...
