Tonight is the annual BBWAA dinner in New York City. Justin Verlander was there to accept his CY Young award and gave a speech. Verlander has been silent since the entire Astros cheating scandal blew up. During is acceptance speech that cocksucker had the balls to joke about the cheating scandal with his smug face. This is the same guy who said years ago that stealing signs like that wasn't good for the game.
"It's not about gamesmanship anymore. It used to be: 'Hey, if you can get my signs, good for you.' In the past, if a guy on second (base) was able to decipher it on a few pitches, I guess that was kind of part of the game," Verlander said. "I think it's a different level now. It's not good." -12up.com
Now he's making jokes about it. Just having a good laugh! What Justin Verlander did not realize was that CC Sabathia was seated in the crowd listening loud and clear. That's the LAST man you wanted in the audience. JV's 2017 Astros robbed that man of a real shot at a second World Series title to end his career. You think Carsten Charles Sabathia is the type to brush off that kind of joke? No sir, that man will be pissed about this until he dies.
I have a friend at this dinner and they believe CC left during the speech or right after. That could be just incorrect, but it's fun to believe that happened. If it's true I expect him to be waiting in the lobby to face that coward. Guy probably left to go get a bat. I'd pay everything to my name to see that fist fight. I'd go to war for CC Sabathia any day of the week anytime anywhere. Remember, he's retired now and answers to no one. He has nothing to lose. You done fucked up now Justin.
I need video of this speech immediately.
CC vs. Justin Verlander at Rough N Rowdy next week with Dana White on the call. Take all of my money.
