Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia discusses his performance, including the use of his fastball, after a strong start in a 3-1 loss to Toronto.
CC Sabathia did something against the Blue Jays on Thursday that hadn’t been done in over 975,000 box scores since 1913: He pitched seven innings, gave up two runs—zero earned—on two hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. He unfortunately was saddled with the loss thanks to the defense behind him and to the Yankees’ offense which was stymied by J.A. Happ to the tune of...

Elbow and knee injuries over the past couple of years have severely hampered Sabathia’s production and made his contract seem like a big disappointment. But we’re here to look at the present, not the...

Alcoholism is no joke for anybody, be it your uncle, neighbor, a random person on the street or even a big league baseball player.
