CC, Say It Ain’t So!

September 7, 2010 – 10:21 pm

Baltimore 6, NYY 2. Wow, so now even CC Sabathia is stinking it up as a starting pitcher. Given the season CC is having, I guess you have to cut him some slack here and just chalk this one up to sun spots or whatever, and figure it means nothing. Although he did pitch fairly poorly two outings ago against the White Sox when he gave up five runs in seven innings. No, not going there — CC is still the ace, still the odds-on Cy Young winner, and this game means nothing at all. End of story.

So after compiling an impressive eight-game winning streak, the Yankees now have a very unimpressive three-game losing streak and are on the verge of getting swept at home by the team with the worst record in the league. How this team has the best record in all of baseball continues to boggle the mind. Anyway, it’s rookie Ivan Nova on the mound Wednesday to try to prevent this ultimate embarrassment. Go Ivan.
