Carsten To Charles?

The New York Daily News is reporting that John Lackey's imminent "Tommy John" elbow surgery is intensifying Red Sox interest in big Yankee left-hander C.C. Sabathia. Due to an opt-out clause in his contract, Sabathia can field free-agent interest from other teams this off-season.

Clearly, landing C.C. would be a huge feather in the cap of new Sox GM Ben Cherington—getting one of the most durable starters in the game and sticking it to our bitterest rival at the same time. Not to mention shoring up a rotation with at least two holes for 2012.
