Win A Sabathia Start Already!
CC Sabathia has a 2-2 record so far this year. He’s not known for his great starts to the season, and last night wasn’t a wonderful performance, but when Brad Penny is the opposing pitcher, you need to find a way to score runs and offset the sins by CC. I know the Yankees are susceptible to the curve ball and yes, we can all see on Fangraphs that Penny threw nearly 20% curveballs last night, but let’s be real here – Penny stinks. The Yankees had plenty of runners on base and they failed to capitalize. If your starter gives you 7 IP on 4 ER and the opposing starting pitcher is Brad Penny, you need to win that game. There’s no excuse for a loss like this!
Hit the ball!
