The New York Yankees are partying like its 2009

In the offseason leading into the 2009 campaign, the New York Yankees decided to throw their money out to the biggest names on the free agent market, in hopes of heading back to their first World Series since 2003, and winning their first championship since 2009. Enter CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett and Mark Teixeira. Sabathia, Burnett and Teixeira – arguably the three best available...

New York Yankees: instant thoughts to game 91 vs. the Seattle Mariners

In game number 91 of the 2015 season, the New York Yankees were looking to win their second game against the Seattle Mariners, which would give them a series win. Although they faced one of the best pitchers in the game in Felix Hernandez, CC Sabathia was able to keep pace with him all game, as the Yankees won a 2-1 pitchers duel. Here are my instant thoughts from yesterday’s game...

As the trade deadline appears, the Yankiverse hears one cruel name reverberating in the distance: Pap... El... Bon.

Yesterday, CC Sabathia seemingly deleted the top line on Brian Cashman's July 31 Christmas wish list: That ace pitcher who might magically whisk us back to 2009. At least for now, the Evils possess five worthy starters, a decent bullpen and more DH's than Donald Trump has tubes of Super-Glue to secure his coyote pelt. (Our merry-go-round at 2B includes the entire voting population...

New York Yankees: Team skips CC Sabathia’s scheduled start

CC Sabathia CC Sabathia, once the valued ace of the New York Yankees’ starting rotation, has been relegated to the bench for the team’s Independence Day game, making it the first time this year that the team has chosen to skip one of his scheduled starts. The struggling southpaw will be replaced on the mound by Michael Pineda, who, to be fair, has been resting for six days since...

Loss Of Warren Weakens A Yankees Rotation Already Weakend By Sabathia

Before each Yankee series begins, I post the pitching match-ups on the blog's Facebook page. I posted them yesterday evening with the comment, "Definitely not liking the fact that CC Sabathia pitches the opener." Sabathia did nothing to take away my fears, as he pitched poorly again, leading to the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Angels.Then I wake up this morning to even more bad news:...

Sabathia's Failure To Transition From Ace Status Becoming Costlier & Costlier For Yankees

Full disclosure: I am a big CC Sabathia fan. I’ll forever remember his performance in 2009 in the regular season and the post season. Those two starts against the Angels in the A.L.C.S, the last on three days rest, were the exact reason the Yankees brought him in and paid him well more than any other team was even considering.The fireball throwing, fist pumping, roaring southpaw...

CC Sabathia, Joe Girardi Ejected After Yankees Turn Double Play (Video)

It’s not often you see a team turn a double play and then have a player and a manager ejected. That’s what happened Sunday for the New York Yankees, though. As you might imagine, however, that’s only half the story, as both starting pitcher CC Sabathia and manager Joe Girardi were dismissed after the top of the sixth ended with a double play. Clearly fed up with the strike...

WATCH: CC Sabathia tossed after recording 2,500th strikeout

Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia had never been ejected from a game heading into Sunday’s matchup with the Angels, but even the longest streaks are made to be broken. Sabathia turned in a strong performance in the game, lasting six innings and giving up only five hits and two earned runs. He picked up his third win of the season, as the Yankees won the game, 6-2. However, Sabathia...

CC Sabathia goes off about spring training stats

  CC Sabathia is having a brutal spring, but he certainly isn’t concerned about what that might mean for his regular season.   Sabathia was knocked around Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates’ minor-league affiliate, the latest in a growing line of disappointments this spring for the New York Yankees left-hander. Sabathia’s spring numbers are not pretty. Sabathia’s...

CC Sabathia gained 30 pounds during the offseason

Maybe saying that C.C. Sabathia was “skinny” last season is simplifying things just a little bit. But Sabathia did get into better shape, dropping 30 pounds and turning up to Spring Training looking downright in shape. Here’s a pic of Sabathia from last spring. VIERA, FL – MARCH 11: CC Sabathia #52 of the New York Yankees throws a pitch in the third inning of a game...
