How do you feel about the Yanks throwing $120+ million at him this offseason?

Not sure yet. A rotation of Sabathia, Joba, Wang, Mussina/Pettitte and Hughes/Kennedy looks pretty potent. Plus, it's a different situation than Santana, meaning they don't have to give up chips and pay him a king's ransom.

The downside being he's 29 and not exactly the model of physical fitness, so a 7-year deal carries a good deal of risk.

Need to think about it some more.

I'm also really interested in the Yu situation.

That was a hit....

Why do the Brewers care...? Sabathia is not going to stay in Milwaukee next year.

It's different than, say, a bunt where a fielder truly has no chance to make a play. C.C. had p-l-e-n-t-y of time to make that play. In fact he almost could have still gone for it even after bobbling it, if he hadn't mentally quit on the play.

In most cases, right or wrong, that gets called a hit. However it's probably really an error because CC truly had a very good chance to make an assist.

Reality check: Scorers get the "error vs. hit" call wrong many times during a season, but usually it's not in the middle of a no-hitter, so we don't care.

I think the official scorer should have known better than to do it during an ongoing no-hitter.

I don't think it's classless of the Brewers to appeal; what are they supposed to do? Stand there and whine? The scorer isn't even on the field to yell at. He's hidden away in some booth somewhere out of play. There was really nothing the team could do AT THE TIME except finish the game.
