CC Sabathia Hits The DL

CC

HBTYankees left-hander CC Sabathia complained of discomfort in his landing (right) knee after allowing eight hits — including three home runs — over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday at Miller Park, so he was sent for an MRI and then placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning after the exam results showed inflammation and fluid buildup.

I think if you were to Google “not ideal”, you would get the current Yankees rotation. You don’t spend the type of money the Yankees do and expect that midway through May we would be looking at a rotation of Tanaka, Nuno, Kuroda, Phelps and Aceves. You also don’t want to be in the situation of saying “Well if they can hold it together until everyone is healthy.” but that is where we are. Hopefully with this break, CC can clear his head and gain 15 pounds, because what we have been seeing from Skinny CC every 5th day has been ugly. If this team is going to make any kind of run, CC is going to need to be healthy and effective, but I think it is time to start looking for trade partners.

PS: The bat and check given to Jeter by the Brewers were a nice and practical gift but I am sure KFC will hate it.
