New High for Lowe?

The Yankees certainly aren't stopping at CC Sabathia. Jon Heyman reported earlier that the Yankees are close to signing Derek Lowe to a 4 year contract worth $68-$72 million. SAY WHAT? That's way too much money for Lowe, though he's a healthier, more consistent pitcher than A.J. Burnett.

It should be safe to say that if the Yankees sign Lowe, they'll rescind their offer to Burnett. But, they still plan on bringing in Ben Sheets if he'll agree to the 2-year deal they've talked about.

Though we don't particularly like Lowe and the money is a large over payment, it makes more sense to sign him than Burnett.
