Finally, a great article on CC Sabathia, minus the fat jokes. CC is almost at 100%. That comes from our pal, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record.
"Three months after his season-ending right knee surgery, Sabathia feels “pretty much back to 100 percent’’ and ready to resume a 32-start, 200-inning workload in next year’s Yankees rotation.
'My only goal is to stay healthy and get back to that – eating up innings and being able to start every fifth day,’ Sabathia said Tuesday afternoon at a midtown Manhattan book signing.
Great job as always Pete, finding the nuggets that the others ignore. And great news for a guy in Sabathia, a man that has a lot of money still coming his way and at least 3 more years with the New York Yankees. I've stated all along that you get CC right again, he will deliver. I believe that, many don't. I don't listen to the doubters on this one... neither does CC.
If the big lug comes back healthy, which is expected, and he can give us a 15 win season, I'd say it's a nice comeback. Do that the next 3 years, and hopefully another championship and CC was definitely worth his contract, no question.
Oh, and you're wondering about the book signing Caldera mentioned? CC has a children's book out titled "CC Claus, A Baseball Christmas Story." I'm not kidding.
And what's Amber up to, you're wondering? Only the New York City Marathon! Holla! Read the Bergen Record's piece on her HERE. We love this woman at BYB!
As Kara Yorio writes, "Amber Sabathia was lying in bed "doing nothing" at the beginning of the summer when she got the text from friend Allison Rosenberg, who was out for a run. Rosenberg wrote that she would be passing by Sabathia's house in about 10 minutes.
Sabathia had already signed up to run the New York City Marathon to raise money for the PitCCh In Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by her and her husband, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia, that benefits inner-city youth.
The marathon was four months away, though, and Amber Sabathia thought she had plenty of time to prepare. She wasn't planning on starting that day."
Amber will be leading a team to run in the marathon. Amazing and good luck to Amber.
Big things happening for the Sabathia family! We appreciate them and are inspired by them at BYB.
Go hard guys!
