C.C. Goes Commando!
If David Dellucci is comparable to "Shipwreck" of G.I. Joe, certainly C.C. Sabathia can be "Commando!" Sabathia was "in command" last night as he pitched a complete game shutout that extended the 2008 Cleveland Indians' starters to 43.1 consecutive scoreless innings. That streak goes on the line again today at high noon when the Indians take on the A's for the final game of their 3-game set. Aaron Laffey gets the assignment and the streak is anticipated to continue and rival the 48 scoreless innings the 1948 Indians put together one magical season. Laffey's last outing against the Blue Jays was 7 scoreless innings. Hold on to your gun belts, this is gonna be a major assault!
