Sabathia likely out until July

Things just keep getting worse.

According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, Yankees Starting Pitcher CC Sabathia, despite the fact that he's just on the 15-Day DL, is now expected to be out until July. 

Sabathia, who's currently getting treatment on the injured knee he suffered in a recent loss to the Brewers, was said to be nowhere near returning this weekend, so really, this announcement isn't that surprising. 

As of now, the veteran lefty, as you all probably already know, has been replaced by minor-leaguer Chase Whitley in the rotation, although that could change with this announcement.

If it does, Cubs Right-Hander Jeff Samardzija is likely the guy the Bombers will go after, as he has just a 1.62 ERA in 9 starts so far this season. If they do decide to pursue him, nothing will be guaranteed though, as numerous teams, the Colorado Rockies included, appear to be wanting his services already. 

Interestingly, Samardzija is actually scheduled to start Wednesday's Yankees-Cubs game, so I guess we'll get an idea of how good he really is then. Obviously, right now he's just pitching in the NL Central, a division much weaker offensively than New York's AL East.


  1. Thomas Twasp's Assignment :
    No, I am not going to go on about any of the old material,..... I wrote about Mr. Twasp.
    It will be a mistake for one to think, that this is what this posting will be about.
    This is about putting Tom's wheels back on track. Ratcheting up the posting level, if you will, is where this is headed.

    Tom is humorous, quick on his feet, and a straw for stirring things up. Very talented. A given.
    What I have never seen from Mr. Twasp, is a lengthy article, with time spent constructing it's format.
    Of the three escapees from Yankee Fans Unite, only Tom has not taken the time to write one.
    Shooting from the hip, I something I find easy. But, Tom pushed me to write an article.
    And now, I am a staff Hemingway. I am on the masthead at Greedy....Such a talent, am I.
    Ken, Rocket, Seven-Up, has written often....but now forgets what he wrote. but, he did it. Good for him.

    Only Tom has not. Maybe if he tried. and he would succeed, he could get back on track.
    I have felt all along, that he thinks he does not fit in well. Uncomfortable, and a bit tight maybe.
    I've written to him, and have told him so. No response. I find that confusing, but acceptable to me.

    So what do you say...Sting Man ? As some had called you. Maybe you're not as talented
    as Ballpark ? or the Mask...Michael Smircich ?
    Take a deep breath, and do it. I did it for you. Now it's your turn.
    Big City of Dreams, and Ernie, read this site. They can't figure out whats going on with you. Show them.
    So whats it gonna be ?.....Ballpark, is the better man ?

  2. I'd sign him up tonight if he were willing...

  3. ELLIJAY BURCH...I know that. Thank you......Lets see what happens.

    Above, and beyond that......patrick is done knocking on doors.
    To conclude tonight :
    There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, that gives me any indication that Sabathia will turn this around.
    He is fat with wealth, soft, and breaking down. His presence harms this team.
    The young arms coming not need to be a part of this. Cut the cord.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
