    CC Sabathia has a new trick in his bag: Andy Pettitte did more than simply watch CC Sabathia‘s bullpen session on Monday.

    Masahiro Tanaka

    TAMPA — The original plan was to go sit in the crowd and drink beer at the Astros-Tigers game, but when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka was making his spring training debut in Tampa today, plans changed. I got in the car at 6:30 this morning and headed to Steinbrenner Field early to take…

    I leave for spring training in Florida tomorrow. Masahiro Tanaka makes his spring training debut on Saturday. Oh, providence! Tanaka will throw 35 pitches for the Yankees that day. He won’t start — that’ll be CC Sabathia — but he will start an inning, either after Sabathia or third after Hiroki Kuroda goes. I was…

    CC Sabathia

    When the skinny CC Sabathia pics started circulating a few weeks ago I thought to myself “yeah, he looks slim now, but put him in that big baggy uniform and he’ll probably be a lot closer to what we usually see.” Most players are like that. Miguel Cabrera was that way even after losing a…

    Crazy pic of CC Sabathia at a wedding over the weekend: But, before you go acting all shocked, go read Ken Rosenthal’s column, in which Sabathia tells him he really hasn’t lost a ton of weight. Rather, he’s just toning up and stuff. It’s possible our reaction to this pic may be a function of…

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:10 PM EST

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    CC Sabathia was among the many observers shocked to learn that second baseman Robinson Cano will be donning a Mariners uniform, rather than Yankee pinstripes, when the 2014 regular season begins.
