SF Giants Rumors

C.C. Sabathia Guesses Jimmy Rollins To Sign With Giants?

By Bryan Rose

C.C. Sabathia and Jimmy Rollins are two things – great buddies and natives of the Bay Area. So when Jimmy Rollins predicted his friend C.C. would sign in New York far before any decision was inked, it didn’t come as a big shock when he actually did.

So with all of that said, Jon Heyman of SI.com brings us this jewel from Yankees ace, C.C. Sabathia:

"cc guessed bay area buddy jimmy rollins may sign in SF. “they need a ss.’’ (jimmy was 1st to predict cc would be yank)"

Rollins, 31, tops the free agent shortstop class (*vomits* at the remaining list) and would sadly be a significant improvement for the orange and black, at least offensively. But given the Giants recent history with overpaying aging shortstops, you can’t help but twitch at the thought of Rollins getting a potential four or five year deal and playing out the back half like an Edgar Renteria clone.
