Seven months ago CC Sabathia left Camden Yards and entered an alcohol treatment center. Last night Sabathia pitched in Camden Yards for the first time since rehab and he had his best start of the season, holding the Orioles scoreless over seven innings. Sabathia has been through it all as a baseball player. I’m sure last night’s game was as special as any win in his career. “It’s...

CC Sabathia did something that a Yankee starter hadn’t been able to accomplish all season. He kept the opposition from crossing home plate. This may seem like a silly thing to say because most people with a brain know it to be true, but when your starting pitcher can keep the other team from scoring early, it helps your offense immensely. Especially the Yankees’ offense which...

CC Sabathia talks about the adjustments he made to throw seven shutout innings and the run support he received in a 7-0 win over Baltimore.
Let me start by congratulating our ace, CC Sabathia, on shutting out the Orioles for 7 frames. He is definitely not, " on the rocks," although, per my pledge, I raced through my bottle of CC as the zeros kept getting posted.Let me just say this; a great friend gave me a stylish shot glass a while back, which is, " outside the normal limits" ( amount of alcohol contained ) when...

The last time CC Sabathia went to Baltimore (with his team, anyway), he did some soul searching, presented himself to manager Joe Girardi and admitted he had a drinking problem. Last night, however, it was a different story. A presumably sober CC put his team on his back and led them out of a horrifying six-game slide, to a 7-0 victory. His line was great: 7IP, 6H, 0R,0ER, 2BB...

BALTIMORE — He insisted his mind was clear, unfettered by the memories of last October, but CC Sabathia also had to acknowledge something else: the contrast between then and now, the difference between Oct. 5 and May 4. And a juxtaposition even starker than that. Last fall, he was a man craving help. He’d spent...

BALTIMORE — One game doesn’t mean the virus living inside the Yankees’ bats has been evicted. However, all the hitters had to do Wednesday night was provide CC Sabathia a lead. With Alex Rodriguez starting a disabled-list stint and watching from the dugout, Sabathia delivered easily his best start of the young season and pitched...

CC Sabathia on his adjustments during a loss to the Rangers.
C.C. Sabathia is not the pitcher he used to be. No longer can the 6-foot-7, 270-pound behemoth of a man strike out 200 batters, win 20 games or eat up 230 innings in a season. 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...
After a stint in alcohol rehab, New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is doing everything possible to avoid a relapse. That includes removing the minibar from hotel rooms on road trips, which he discussed in an exclusive interview with VICE Sports. Sabathia wrote an essay in The Players' Tribune in which he mentions a weekend in Baltimore just before his rehab stay where he...
