A New Bronx Bomber...

Good luck to CC Sabathia in New York, except when he is playing against the Cleveland Indians. Oh, and also when he is pitching to put the Yankees in contention to make the 2009 playoffs.

Oh, but really good luck to him when he is pitching against a Central Division foe; White Sox, Tigers, Royals, and Twins.

I like CC and wish him well but I am not worried about facing him. The Cleveland Indians will beat CC Sabathia. I hope the Yankees do not make the playoffs again in 2009 but if they do, I hope we play them and I hope we face CC.

We have the "privilege" of being the team that opens the new Yankee Stadium on April 16th. I hope we face CC Sabathia.

Good luck to you CC. Cleveland still loves ya, but we love our Indians first!

Yeah, that's CC's thing, isn't it? He's tough on the Royals in July. He kills the Orioles in August.

But when he has to win a playoff game (and good luck with that lineup) he'll choke it away, just like he always does.

160 mil is a lot of money for a guy who has never won a meaningful game in his life. Here's his post-season career stats: 1-3, 7.92 era.

Sabathia couldn't handle the pressure of winning in Cleveland or Milwaukee. How is he going to handle the media frenzy in New York?

Here's my vision: He will start the season opener in the shiny new Yankee Stadium, where some season tickets cost upwards of $65,000.

Sabathia will come out, give up his usual 6 runs in the first 4 innings because he's trying too hard, and he'll get booed. Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2009 Yankees!

But he'll shut down Texas on the road in his next start.

Oh sorry... I thought that was LeBron James in the NY hat.
