Supposing Sabathia opts out of his contract (which I think would be a no-brainer for him), would Fielder or Sabathia be a better sign? There's good and bad to both, and neither will make this team a contender next year, although perhaps in the second or third year of a deal the team will start to come together. Putting in place either an ace or a high producing 1B now could be a good step in the right direction for 2013/2014.
Between the two, I would lean towards Sabathia as Cy Young material pitchers aren't too common to come onto the market. That said, I am really hoping that we can sign Fielder. So I guess between the two I would want Sabathia, although I would happily take either.
