With several industry voices saying the Yankees will begin interviewing managerial candidates this week in New York, it appears CC Sabathia might sell himself short if he is only looking for a one-year deal. Finding Joe Girardi’s successor is the Yankees’ top priority as general manager Brian Cashman starts to sift through the process of landing a manager who is capable of leading a team loaded with talented young players in a market where expectations will be extremely high come spring training after falling a game short of reaching the World Series. Eventually Cashman will have a manager in place and turn toward what the 2018 roster will look like. There have been no indications the Yankees don’t want a reunion with Sabathia after a 14-5 regular season in which he made 27 starts, posted a 3.69 ERA and delivered solid outings in two of four postseason games. During the middle of the season Sabathia, whose family has deep roots in Bergen County, N.J., said his preference was to remain in The Bronx where he has been since pitching the Yankees to the 2009 World Series title. In nine Yankees seasons, Sabathia is 120-73 with a 3.75 ERA in 255 regular-season starts.
