Carsten Charles “CC” Sabathia, Jr. is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball.
NEW YORK – This year will go down in history for CC Sabathia, the game the Yankees absolutely, unconditionally had to win to keep marching in the AL Championship Series 2017 came down to one man.
CC SABATHIA JR
I knew it could be done, and I called it. CC Sabathia downed the Astros in 4 innings, then the Yankees went to work. The Bay-Area veteran pulled through like his real fans and love ones figured only he could. We don’t even have to ask how hard it has been of a journey for CC Sabathia Jr, playing for several major league rosters in a league where black pitchers are rare, it seems he always has a lot more to prove when at the mound. With his contract up at the end of the season, which way is up should not be the question, after last nights performance – the Yankees better resign the Bay-Area legend.
When it comes to those win-or-else moments in the postseason, CC Sabathia has become the Yankees’ soul-food. Everything feels better, now that the big lefty shook the Astros 8-1 in Game 3. The ALCS 2017 Yankees’ victory in game 3 will be undermined due to who did it and how, some will poke and say it was just a courtesy to pacify the ticket buyers, or will CC SABATHIA JR. be the start of another miracle comeback.
Sabathia gave an utmost worthy performance, with very precise pitching. The veteran dominated the Astros for six innings, giving up just three hits and hogging on their best hitters as if boys met MAN. Those big guns – George Springer, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, the three who Luis Severino couldn’t snuff, the ones who ambushed Aroldis Chapman’s 100-mph stinger in Game 2 – who CC Sabathia left just 1-for-6 with two strikeouts. So if you are an Yankee fan, lets please give a warm toast and appreciation for CC Sabathia.
