With CC Sabathia off the market, free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe could become the target of a number of teams interested in upgrading their pitching this winter. Lowe's deal definitely will not be in the seven-year, $161 million range Sabathia earned, but the idea has been floated of a five-year deal in the $80 million range. "He has serious interest from a lot of teams, and we're marching through them," agent Scott Boras said Wednesday. "In New York, you have to do well, and do well in key situations. "His performance in postseasons adds to his appeal not only for the Yankees, but other teams as well. He's looking for a contending club, but certainly a number of [interested] teams fill that bill."
