C.C. Sabathia?

Recommended Posts

I know this might be a REAL long shot, but since the Os want a LHSP, do you think they would take a look at Sabathia? Not sure NY wants him back, nor if CC would go back considering how they treated him in the post season, though NY certainly looks like the leading contender in the AL right now and CC would want a ring.

He could be a Rick Sutcliffe kind of signing from the early 90s, a guy who could mentor Gausman and Bundy and maybe Harvey, not that he is the ideal character man, but he did show guile in going to get help for his addiction.

Maybe a two year contract with the second year as a player option?

I'd be happy to get CC and I think he fits the "veteran on a short term contract" and "lefty" interests expressed by DD...


But, I feel like we've had this thread like three times already this offseason. People are gonna come in and say:

"He already said he wants to stay in NY"

"The Yankees will resign him now that they missed out on Ohtani"

"He wouldn't pass an Os physical"

"He wants to play for a contender at this stage of his career"

"We'd have to overpay for him"

"Os won't get him."


...and they would most likely be right.

Sabathia and the Yankees agreed to a 1 year contract for $10 million.  Just pending a physical.


The Yankees have just made one good move after another over the last two years.    I’m sure Sabathia could have gotten more money elsewhere, but now CC is seeing that this is a WS caliber team and he’s got a good shot at a ring by staying put.    It’s not like he needs the money.

    • True, although to be honest I am all ready to trade both. Particularly Kjerstad. Bat only players just don't do much for me.
    • Every year, it seems there are new stats driven by improved technologies...bat speed, exit velo, angle of elevation, etc Let's talk spin rate....and I'll use two examples....2400 vs 2200. That is a pretty big difference. Those are revolutions per minute as I understand it. 2400/60 = 40 spins/second... 2200/60 = 36.7 spins per second It takes about .4 seconds for the ball to reach the plate. So, 2400 equates to 40 spins/second to 16 spins/.4 sec 2200 equates to 36.7/sec to 14.7 spins/.4 sec That's a difference 1.3 revolutions for a 200 difference in spin rate. Do 1.3 revolutions make that much difference? Look at a knuckle ball, basically 0 revolutions/minute and the movement it gets. Spin rates/minutes are impressive. Spin rates .4 seconds, not so much. I am an old school believer in location, location, location along with changing speeds. Educate me.    
    • 11 months if you include the off season and just pretend August didn’t happen.  He was awful in July had a very nice August and was slightly bad in September.  This year he was  god awful in March/April in 45 at bats.   May has been ok decent average but no power and he never has walked much.  The loss of power and hard hit ball numbers are a concerning but it has still been about 1 month of at bats.  
    • Well that's not great.  I mean, kicking grounders in the outfield is...I don't wanna say Little League, but it's just not good.  
    • Baumann has pitched once for the Marines and walked 2 of the 4 batters he faced. What makes you think he wouldn't be part of the problem still? 
    • Yes, I think we’re on the same page. I wouldn’t mind at all extending Henderson and Westburg. I think it’s too early for some guys, and way too late for others.  But Gunny & Westy should remain on stage for the foreseeable future. And Burnes is going to be too expensive, so make the offer, take the pick, and move on. For me, though, and I said this more than once, the issue isn’t spending money in free agency it’s making wise and meaningful trades, and utilizing the assets we have.
    • I think Soto’s body type may lend itself to a longer productive period than some of the heavier, big body types.  But who knows?
