CC SABATHIA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees’ CC Sabathia: I Would Take Jon Lester In Must-Win Playoff Game

The New York Yankees don’t need to look far for a ringing endorsement of Jon Lester. CC Sabathia was asked during an interview with ESPN Radio on Wednesday who he’d want on the mound in a must-win playoff game. The Yankees pitcher pointed to a longtime American League rival. “I think it would have to be, I guess, Jon Lester,” Sabathia said. “I like Lester.” Sabathia and...

Yankees' CC Sabathia: I could still dominate

Despite a pair of down seasons, a loss of fastball velocity and a serious knee injury, CC Sabathia said still believes he can regain his Cy Young-caliber form. Asked on ESPN Radio Wednesday whether he could come back in 2015 and pitch the way he did in 2009 — when his 19-8 record and 3.37 ERA helped lead the Yankees to a World Series title — Sabathia said he could. "I...

Yankees Injury Update: C.C. Sabathia expects to pitch full season in 2015

The New York Yankees finished the 2014 season with 84 wins, their lowest win total since they won 79 when Derek Jeter was a 21-year old phenom back in 1995. At 20th in the Major Leagues in runs scored and 18th in ERA, the Yankees look to improve in both areas next season in order to compete for a playoff spot in the American League. One player who could help solidify the staff is...

What CC Sabathia and A-Rod have in common right now

CC Sabathia said he’s “pretty much back to 100 percent” as he continues to come back from knee surgery, but just like several of his other high-priced teammates, including Alex Rodriguez, there are no guarantees on what he’ll produce going forward. Still, the lefty sounded confident that both will be able to contribute in 2015, which is something the Yankees will almost...

New York Yankees: Will Tanaka triumph?

This season has been a rough one for the Yankees’ bullpen. Losing CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova in the first half was difficult, but manageable. Watching David Phelps get taken out of the game on Sunday against the Red Sox due to inflammation of his right elbow was also hard to watch, but I think it’s safe to say that Yankees fans everywhere lost a little bit of hope for the postseason...

Is This the End for C.C. Sabathia?

The ride can't last forever, all things must come to an end, Father Time catches up to us all; these are just some of the clichés that come to mind when discussing the end of an athlete's run. In this case, it's New York Yankees starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia. No, he hasn't made any sort of retirement announcement. In fact, he might not for a couple more years....

Would it be better for the Yankees if CC Sabathia retired?

Just a few years ago New York Yankees lefty CC Sabathia was one of the most feared pitchers in baseball. Now, at 33 years old, there is a chance his career will never get back on track. But would it actually be better for the Yankees if Sabathia wound up retiring? Lots of experts seem to think so. At the height of his prowess, Carsten Charles (no, CC does not stand for “chewy...

The Yankees still owe CC and A-Rod $137 million, and they will probably receive nothing in return

Today or tomorrow, CC Sabathia will seek that dreaded "second opinion" on his troubled right knee, which is a known degenerate. Yankee fans don't need another diagnosis. We already know. Like performing killer whales, we have been trained to wave our dorsal fins in surrender whenever a Yankee goes in for the "second opinion." We know that player's season...

We have the man who was once CC Sabathia through 2017 at a cost of nearly $100 million

See here the last four years of ERA for Mr. CC Sabathia: 3.00, 3.38, 4.78 and - now, over one month - 5.11. It's rising like watching the trajectory of a Reggie Jackson home run. Yesterday, the home town fans booed CC as if he had signed with Seattle, while he botched a rubber match against a team we need to beat, and which seems to own a voodoo doll pin/cushion for us.Since...

CC Sabathia looks like an evil gypsy gave him the ‘Thinner’ curse (pic)

Looking good, @CC_Sabathia! #SpringTraining pic.twitter.com/VA4seKgQ0b — New York Yankees (@Yankees) February 21, 2014 Photos of New York Yankees previously portly pitcher C.C. Sabathia appearing noticeably slimmer began to surface on the interwebs in late January, launching a lot of discussion about how much better, healthier and more fit he looks. On Thursday, Sabathia was photographed...
