Must CC TV

30 Jun

Since last season, C.C. Sabathia has won a string of a dozen games following a Yankees loss with diminished stuff and a balky right knee that carries his 300-pound frame.  Yet he pitched a masterpiece last night against the hit machine Red Sox.  Here is how Marc Carig of The Athletic leads his story:

A few​ weeks​ ago,​ CC​ Sabathia engaged​ Sonny Gray​ in a conversation.​ It​ hinged on​ baseball​ mortality. The central​​ question: “How long is too long?” It’s an expected topic for a 37-year-old lefty with a faded fastball, a creaky right knee, and an odometer that recently clicked to more than 50,000 pitches thrown in the major leagues. If there was ever a manufacturers’ warranty on Sabathia, it expired before the advent of Twitter.
