New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia hasn't been himself this season.The southpaw is currently on pace to record his highest earned run average in a season since 2002 and is also flirting extremely close to posting his first losing record in a season in his 13-year career, too.Sabathia didn't mince words after his outing against rival Boston on Sunday night. The California native surrendered seven runs on nine hits in five laboring innings of work. The poor performance led to the following remarks afterward:“I suck. I wish I had an excuse or something. It sucks. It’s embarrassing. But you have to try to work through it, figure something out and start trying to help this team instead of hurting it.”Of course, Sabathia's recent woes could have something to do with his increasing age. The 33-year-old already has over 400 starts and around 2,700 innings in his MLB career under his belt. However, the Yankees have him signed through at least the end of the 2016 season, so it's not likely Sabathia will be going anywhere anytime soon.Part of Sabathia's problem has been that he his allowing more home runs and hits than he usually does. He currently leads the league in both hits and home runs allowed and his WHIP (1.268) is as high as its been in 10 seasons.It's not time to push the panic button for Sabathia just yet. But you know it's troubling when a pitcher himself declares that he sucks.Via Hardball Talk

  • I have to agree with CC, though I wish that statement was wrong. Considering all the injuries to key players such as Teixeira, Granderson, Jeter, ARod, Cervelli and Pineda we really need him to pitch like an Ace. He should have at least 12 wins at this point in the season, instead he has just 8. If he had 12 wins we would be 56-42 and only 3 games back of Boston right now. If the Yankees have any chance to grab a playoff spot CC needs to pull his head out of his asss and start earning his Enormous salary.
