It’s pretty funny that Yankee fans have been so gung ho about the supposed “difference” that CC Sabathia has brought to the team this year. He’s been good, no doubt, but did he bring anything to the table that the 2008 Yankees ace did?
Here’s Mike Mussina’s numbers in his last season: 20-9, 3.37 ERA, 200.1 ip.
Here’s Sabathia’s: 19-8, 3.37, 230 ip.
So yeah, he’s been good, but the difference for the Yankees this year over last year has really been Mark Teixiera. The powerful first baseman has been a huge upgrade from Jason Giambi and has interestingly taken away some of the spotlight and pressure from Mr. Kate Hudson.
The Yankees really took advantage of the tired Twins and their relentless offense wore down Brian Duensing and the once great, now terrible Francisco Liriano. They get a day off today, and barring any Miguel Cabrera – like excursions they should appear as a fresh team on Friday.
