Brewers make formal offer to Sabathia
Milwaukee holds exclusive negotiating rights through Nov. 13
MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers are the first entrant into the CC Sabathia sweepstakes.
The team submitted its first formal offer to Sabathia's representatives on Saturday, when Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin traveled to California for the General Managers Meetings. The Brewers' offer is believed to be in the neighborhood of $100 million, but Melvin, reached Monday morning, would not discuss specifics, including whether the team had made a four- or five-year offer.
