CC Sabathia gained 30 pounds during the offseason

Maybe saying that C.C. Sabathia was “skinny” last season is simplifying things just a little bit. But Sabathia did get into better shape, dropping 30 pounds and turning up to Spring Training looking downright in shape. Here’s a pic of Sabathia from last spring. VIERA, FL – MARCH 11: CC Sabathia #52 of the New York Yankees throws a pitch in the third inning of a game...

The real Retro Week: Let's return to the archives of 2014. "I've been working pretty much the whole offseason to be ready," Sabathia said. "I started throwing the football in October and carried that all the way through to December, when I picked up a bas

River Ave Blues - my favorite Yankee web site, even though it is owned by YES - is in the middle of Retro Week, launching wonderful write-ups of Ramiro Mendoza and Dave Righetti. They are like eating ice cream.But though it's nice to remember 1990 and 2002, I think we should keep 2014 in mind - especially as we start to get served the fodder for this new season. Let's go back to...

Can Yankees' CC Sabathia resuscitate his career?

Would it be better for the Yankees if CC Sabathia retired?

The Yankees still owe CC and A-Rod $137 million, and they will probably receive nothing in return

Today or tomorrow, CC Sabathia will seek that dreaded "second opinion" on his troubled right knee, which is a known degenerate. Yankee fans don't need another diagnosis. We already know. Like performing killer whales, we have been trained to wave our dorsal fins in surrender whenever a Yankee goes in for the "second opinion." We know that player's season - if not his career - has...

We have the man who was once CC Sabathia through 2017 at a cost of nearly $100 million

See here the last four years of ERA for Mr. CC Sabathia: 3.00, 3.38, 4.78 and - now, over one month - 5.11. It's rising like watching the trajectory of a Reggie Jackson home run. Yesterday, the home town fans booed CC as if he had signed with Seattle, while he botched a rubber match against a team we need to beat, and which seems to own a voodoo doll pin/cushion for us.Since CC's...
