CC Sabathia, on new teammate Curtis Granderson:
Hopefully he’ll hit like 50 homers in our stadium. He was always a tough out for me.
If you’re curious, for his career Granderson is 3-for-19 (.158) with seven strikeouts and zero walks against Sabathia. In fact, 115 different batters have had at least 20 career plate appearances against Sabathia and Granderson has the third-worst OPS, ahead of only Bengie Molina and Angel “Tough Out” Berroa.
