This is pretty fantastic. Oh, not the story, which makes absolutely no suggestion that the Red Sox would ever spring for CC Sabathia should he opt out of his deal with the Yankees. It’s just a “hey, what if …” kind of piece that you often see this time of year, especially from papers like the Daily News.

Well played, Daily News. Well played.
