CC Sabathia is on the hill this afternoon in what will be the team's last game at George M. Steinbrenner field in Tampa this spring. Sabathia has been brutal this month, with an 11.57 ERA in 4.2 official spring innings. He also didn't pitch particularly well against some minor leaguers on March 29th, so things have been pretty bad for him, despite his increased velocity. Here's hoping the big lefty can turn things around, because the Yankees need him to pitch well this season. The Bombers will be facing Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals, and you can all watch it live on YES.
