CC Sabathia has been happy with the way he’s been pitching lately. His fastball command has been an issue over his last few starts and coming in, the big Yankee southpaw hadn’t won a game in over a month (April 27th vs Toronto). Friday night against the Red Sox, Sabathia delivered and ace like performance, allowing only one runs on six hits, while walking none and tying a season with 10 strikeouts on 109 pitches, in the Yankees 4-1 win over their arch rivals. With Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis back in the lineup, the Yankee were able to score a couple runs early that would give Sabathia all the run support he would need.

Last Night Was Rough and it's Not Gonna Get Easier

As much as I hate the Yankees, I have to give them their due. They shut us down last night. Ot more specifically, CC Sabathia shut us down. He was nothing short of brilliant last night. He is a legimate ace and he pitched like one last night. Trust me, it pains me a lot to type these words, but I give respect where it's due, and Sabathia earned my respect (at least for now)....
