CC Sabathia

  1. Weight loss to blame for CC Sabathia’s woes?

    Aug 4, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia throws against the Minnesota Twins

    In his latest column for the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo cites a “talent evaluator”, who thinks CC Sabathia‘s weight loss is to blame for his lack of success in 2013. Some players just perform better carrying more weight. Sabathia seems to be one of them. Some think such a theory is silly, that Sabathia is…

  2. CC Sabathia struggled again last night

    Make that four straight losses for CC Sabathia. The veteran southpaw struggled once again last night, giving up five runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Padres. Sabathia yielded a season-high 14 baserunners (11 hits and three walks), including a fourth-inning solo home run by Logan Forsythe. His 24 home runs allowed this season are…

  3. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Yankees' Sabathia reacts after catcher Romine made a throwing error on a bunt by Bay Rays' Jennings and a run scored during their MLB American League game at Yankee Stadium

    Things are getting really ugly for CC Sabathia. After the big left-hander was knocked around by the Red Sox on Sunday, he gave up seven runs over five innings last night in a 10-6 loss to the Rays. Sabathia began the outing with a 1-2-3 first inning, but he allowed six runs on six hits…

  4. CC Sabathia: “I suck”

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:50 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia, Jonny Gomes

    It’s always something, I guess. On a night when the Yankees moribund offense actually goes out and scores some runs, the team’s ace doesn’t show. CC Sabathia gave up seven runs on nine hits in five innings. After the game he minced no words: “I suck. I wish I had an excuse or something. It…

  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 15, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 10, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Baltimore Orioles

    Rangers 8, Orioles 2: Adrian Beltre hit two homers on a 4 for 4, 5 RBI night. He has an 11 game hitting streak and is 21 for his last 43. Wrecking crew. — He’s not a member of the All-Star team despite a line of .319/.362/.551. Thank you, Jim Leyland, though, for giving us five middle…

  7. CC Sabathia wins his 200th game

    Jul 4, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia throws against the Minnesota Twins

    CC Sabathia beat the Twins last night. That’s nothing new, he always beats the Twins. But it was significant for another reason: it was his 200th career win. That’s 200 wins against 108 losses in his 13th season. Sabathia turns 33 in a couple of weeks and he’s been remarkably durable in his career. As…

  8. Mark Teixeira’s contract another expensive miscue for Yankees

    Jun 26, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    When it was signed following the 2008 season, Mark Teixeira‘s eight-year, $180 million deal with the Yankees was the third biggest in MLB history and largest to go to someone not named Alex Rodriguez. Now it rivals Rodriguez’s as one of the worst in baseball. With the news Wednesday that Teixeira would undergo wrist surgery,…

  9. Who is Alex Rodriguez following on Twitter?

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

  10. Wil Myers hits grand slam off CC Sabathia for first major league home run

    Jun 22, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Wil Myers AP

    Wil Myers hit his first major league home run in impressive fashion this afternoon against the Yankees, as he took left-hander CC Sabathia deep for a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium. You can watch it right here. It was an opposite-field homer for Myers, which was encouraging…

    Anna Scorecard

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Rockies 12, Reds 4: The Colorado Wrecking Crew: Carlos Gonzalez hit three home runs and drove in six. Troy Tulowitzki hit two of his own. Pedro Villarreal had no idea what hit him. White Sox 7, Mariners 5: You figure if you score five runs in the top of an extra inning that you’re gonna…

  13. Brandon McCarthy headed to disabled list with shoulder problems

    Jun 1, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    Brandon McCarthy Getty

    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are placing right-hander Brandon McCarthy on the disabled list due to shoulder problems. This confirms a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Of course, shoulder issues are nothing new for McCarthy, who gave up six runs on nine hits over 2 2/3 innings in…

  14. CC Sabathia turns in strong effort as Yankees snap five-game losing streak

    Jun 1, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia Getty

    After the Yankees lost five in a row — including four at the hands of the crosstown Mets — they turned to ace CC Sabathia last night to stop the bleeding. He was up to the task. Sabathia allowed just one run over 7 1/3 innings and matched a season-high with 10 strikeouts as the…

  15. The Kansas City Royals Power Hour

    May 29, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Kansas City Royals

    The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

  16. CC Sabathia says he is “hurting the team”

    May 26, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    Yankees starter CC Sabathia allowed seven runs in seven innings to the Rays this afternoon, resulting in an 8-3 loss. Though the Yankees had won in Sabathia’s previous three starts, the lefty is winless in the month of May and struggled for the second start in a row. On May 20, Sabathia allowed four runs…

  17. Robinson Cano homers twice in win over Blue Jays

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Brandon Morrow, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

    Luke Scott, Ryan Roberts

    Rays 5, Blue Jays 4: A battle of reigning Cy Young winners decided by a bases loaded walk to an Obama birther. Good times. I watched most of this one. Price and Dickey were OK, but not great. It was, like, the third straight home Rays game I’ve watched where Dick Vitale was noted in…

  20. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    Los Angeles Dodgers Kershaw watches solo home run in eighth inning against San Francisco Giants during MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Dodgers 4, Giants, 0: I watched part of this game with my kids after they got home from school. When they were showing the lineups, they showed Clayton Kershaw‘s career .146 average and my son asked me why it was so low compared to the other players’. I explained to him that pitchers can’t really…

  23. CC Sabathia downplays concerns over diminished velocity

    Apr 1, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Sabathia Reuters

    CC Sabathia allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks over five innings in today’s season-opening 8-2 loss to the Red Sox. In doing so, the big southpaw topped out at just 91.7 mph on his fastball (according to Brooks Baseball) and relied heavily on his changeup to get outs. However, he told Mark…

  24. Red Sox storm into first place, beat Yankees 8-2

    Apr 1, 2013, 4:55 PM EDT

    Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Jumping all over CC Sabathia, the Red Sox racked up 13 hits and eight walks to beat the Yankees 8-2 in Monday’s opener. A typical Red Sox-Yankees game, it finished about an hour and a half later than the Nationals’ 2-0 win over the Marlins, which also started at 1:05 p.m. EDT. The Red Sox…

  25. Random Opening Day Thoughts while watching the Yankees and Red Sox

    Apr 1, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    I turned the Red Sox-Yankees game on at 1pm. There are other games, but the TV with cable next to my desk doesn’t have the Roku player on it, so this one was just easier to do while still actually pretending to work. We’re not live blogging or anything, but I will be chiming in…
