HERE COMES CC
A quick note and nothing you don't already know if you've been reading the pages of BYB. CC Sabathia will be back soon, and he'll be back as a starter. I found that interesting.
According to the New York Post:
"Less than two weeks later, the Yankees are planning on inserting Sabathia back into the rotation.
Pitching with a new brace on his right knee, the lefty said he felt “great” after throwing four innings — 62 pitches — in a simulated game before the Yankees’s 5-2 triumph over the Rays at the Stadium.
'No pain,' Sabathia said. 'I tested it pretty good, as if I was in a game, so I’m excited.'
Sabathia has pitched most of the season with a sleeve on his surgically-repaired knee, after a brace he tried out in the spring proved to be too bulky.
'I didn’t notice it hindering him,' manager Joe Girardi said. 'He can let it go without the fear of something popping up.'”
When there is no pain, that's a gain. CC will be back next week. My question to our readers is this though... when CC comes back, where would you want him to go? Starter, or Reliever? Vote in our poll on the home page, right side of BYB.
When the voting closes, we'll do a piece on it.
We root for CC, but the fact that he suggested he wanted to come back as a reliever and the Yankees are insisting he return as a starter is puzzling to me. No matter, I still back the team and the man!
