Sabathia's velocity a concern

CC Sabathia's decreased velocity last season, during the spring, and on Opening Day has given reasons for people to be concerned.

C.C. Sabathia not concerned about drop in velocity

Many times a drop in a pitcher's fastball velocity can be indicative of an injury.  Or it can be part of the normal aging process.  Pitcher just can't continue throwing as hard as they used to as they get older.  So what's the reason for C.C. Sabathia's drop in velocity? No one knows for sure, but Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says Sabathia is not...

Opening Day: AKA Spring Training Game #33

Today started like every other weekday season opener for me: I developed a cough, called out sick, piled on Yankee gear from head to toe, and went to my best friend's house to watch the game. The excitement of the season opener soon gave way to the ambivalence that comes from watching a less than ace pitcher and a bunch of utility players take the field. In other words--a Spring...

Andy Pettitte: 'I expect us to be in the World Series'

Opening Day win for the Red Sox in the Bronx

AL BEast Notebook – April 1 It’s a great start to the season if you are a Red Sox fan. Not so much for their proud counterparts in the Big Apple. CC Sabathia gave up four runs in the second inning on walks and singles and that was all Boston needed as they beat the Yankees 8-2 on a day that started out warm and sunny and ended cold, rainy and windy, with empty bleachers and trash...

Assorted Quick Thoughts on Opening Day No. 2

Sunday was the beginning of the 2013 MLB regular season, and it kicked off with a bang, as the Astros bombed the Rangers and we all learned a lesson about the real value of a one-game playoff. Not like the stakes were the same, so the game was managed differently from how it could’ve been, but in any one given game, a team like the Houston Astros can beat a team unlike the Houston...

Recap: Sox grind out an 8-2 win over the Yankees

We shouldn't get too caught up over one game right? NAHHHHH. CUE THE DUCKBOATS.   162-0 baby! The Red Sox attacked an unusally shaky CC Sabathia and Jon Lester managed to work through a rough inning and let the bullpen come in and do shut down the Yankees and come out with an 8-2 win.  This wasn't a classic Sox victory with the lineup cranking out three or four homers...
