I don't know. I don't think Wilson is a lock to get 100m. And even if he does, CC will make 142m unless his arm falls off. Last year's premiere FA pitcher got 132m. I don't know how much more Sabathia could've gotten from another team.
CC basically got the same contract Lee pulled out of Philly last winter, plus the standard "here's a little more then he got" tax. With it being a relative toss up on which player got the better vesting option tacked on imo (given my belief that both will be fairly cooked by the time year 6 rolls around, i'm preferring my $12.5m buyout if i'm Lee). Had CC opted out and tested FA, i'd of given him better odds then a coin flip on seeing that offer again elsewhere. Especially with a guy like CJ Wilson being the current "prize" otherwise up for grabs, who after missing the boat to inflate his market value in the playoffs, i'm projecting to come in at a touch over Lackey money btw.
So all in all, i'd have to label this a default "win" for the MFY here, as there's little doubt in my mind they don't at least guarantee that 6th year latter had it come down to a bidding war scenario. With or without that legitimate offer elsewhere actually being on the table for that matter.
(seriously though, could it be any better for a FA nowadays then a current negotiation with the Yankees? The next marquee free agent who's agent *isn't*
firmly demanding a risk-free/early opt out clause out of them needs to fire that guy asap)
