As some of you already know CC Sabathia struggled a bit today against the Pirates. Ok Ok struggled is an understatement he got killed. But keep this little tid bit in mind, It is his second start of spring training. In his second start of the spring last year he got roughed up by the Tigers and last year I think he did pretty darn good. Its only spring training kids.He knows he was bad and with the help of the Yankees pitching gurus he will fix it. That is what spring training is all about. All of his pitches were up because he was collapsing on his back leg during his delivery. The result resembled batting practice allowing the Pirates seven hits and five runs in 2.75 innings. Dont worry even for a second kids this is not the beginning of the end of one of the greatest pitchers in baseball.
The game wasnt all bad Curtis Granderson hit a triple and showed that he can still fly around the bases. Nick Johnson went deep twice. Seems he has been working with hitting guru Kevin Long and Yankee Stadium should increase his power numbers.
