04:26 AM ET 11.21 | The Yankees have now called their three top pitching targets on their Quarter Billion Tour, with varying degrees of success. They successfully presented a $140-million, six-year offer to top target CC Sabathia, who's now looking around with no timetable in mind. "Comfortable,'' was how a friend described how Sabathia's current feeling. Comfortable, indeed. But at least Sabathia's agent, Greg Genske, took in the Yankees' bid without comment. The same can't be said for the other two cases. The Yankees intended to make four-year offers on A.J. Burnett and Derek Lowe for about $14-15 million annually (in other words, close to $60 million each). However, Burnett's agent, Darek Braunecker, is telling teams he's only considering five-year proposals, and Lowe's agent, Scott Boras, apparently also suggested the Yankees aren't in the ballpark.
