Reports this morning from Jayson Stark, Jon Heyman, Joel Sherman, Ken Rosenthal and Buster Olney have the Yankees getting what they came for, so to speak, and bringing CC Sabathia to New York.

The majority of them indicate that the Yankees have raised their offer, from 6 years and $140 million to 7 years and $160 million. This drops the average annual salary from $23.3 million a year to $22.8. So, an odd $500,000 a year less, with a higher total value. Sabathia hasn't yet put his name on the dotted line, but the various sources say that he's selected the Yankees as his destination and now they are just working out the final, minor details and having the big lefty take a physical. A source told Stark that there are "zero major road blocks" that could prevent this from happening. The holidays may have come early for Yankees fans. Here's Olney discussing the deal:
