That is going to be a pretty tough sell to get that kind of money. He just does not have the body of work that Johan does. Santana has established himself as one of the game's best over the past five years while last year was Sabathia's first year of being considered amongst the game's elite. Last year was the first season Sabathia ever got a Cy Young vote while Santana has been top five the past four seasons running. Nobody has ever questions Santana's dedication or heart and I seem to remember up until last season there were some real questions as to Sabathia's dedication to the game.

With that being said if he is truly going after that kind of money then it is safe to say he will probably be wearing a Boston or New York uni next year. They are about the only two teams willing to scratch that kind of check.
