Rasner Sold To Japan/Lebron On CC

Posted by Mark McCray |

The New York Yankees and Brian Cashman worked out a deal on Saturday to sell the rights to pitcher Darrel Rasner to the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Japanese Pacific League. Apparently, Rasner heard that there was some speculation that a few Japanese teams had interest in acquiring him, and upon finding this out Rasner told his agent to work to get a deal brokered.

“I just have to hope and pray that this is good for me and my family,” Rasner said by telephone from his home in Reno, Nev. “Having another kid, that kind of changes everything. I just think now’s the time to try to do something and try to get the stability that I need for those guys.”


In other news, the Yankees biggest fan in the NBA, Lebron James, said that he absolutely believes that CC Sabathia will suit up for the 2009 season in the prestigious Pinstripes.

Lebron and CC are really good friends and this can absolutly been seen as an promising indicator of the Yankees chances on acquiring the 28 year old workhorse.
