In our last Yankees poll we asked what should the Yankees do if CC Sabathia opts out of his deal and signs elsewhere?

Here are the results:

Give the kids such as Betances and Banuelos a shot 47%
Trade for an ace 34%
Start trading for quantity instead of quality 9%
Overpay for Texas ace C.J. Wilson 6%
Bring back both Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon 4%

Sabathia has an opt-out clause in his seven-year, $161-million deal. He has until three days after the conclusion of the World Series to exercise it, something the organization expects and hopes to avoid by extending the lefthander before then.
