CC Remains a Yankee

CC will be a Yankee for at least 5 more seasons after signing an extension last night

Last night the Yankee signed a contract extension with CC for an extra year and 30 million total. He will also have an option for an extra year dependent upon the condition of his shoulder at the end of the contract after the 2016 season.

This is was step 1 in the Yankees plan for this offseason and it now complete. There was never a doubt CC wanted to remain a Yankee and he proved it by stepping up and getting this done before even opting out of the original contract.

The Yankees also are close to signing a new contract with Brian Cashman, and they picked up the options on Swisher and Cano as expected. Now it’s time to go out and find someone else to pitch in the rotation, perhaps two. CJ Wilson doesn’t look like he’s coveted by the Yankees (which I am happy about), but names like Mark Buehrle and Roy Oswalt might make more sense because they’ll demand much less money and years of the their contracts.

For now the Yankees are headed in the right direction, but this is just step 1 of many.
