What’s up with CC Sabathia?

sabathia7 CC Sabathia got rocked last night by the Rays. Did anyone see that coming after A.J. Burnett made the same team look foolish the night before? Not me. So what’s the explanation?

This is not the answer: in Sabathia’s career against the Rays prior to last night, he was 6-1 with a 2.63 ERA. After each poor start, last year’s domination of the National League seems more and more like a fluke against less-challenging lineups.

But don’t fret. He still has been a bullpen saver in almost all of his starts and has given up four runs or less in 17 of his 22 starts.

Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News digs even deeper on the same discussion on his blog.
