Now that Shohei Ohtani is no longer an option, the Yankees are circling back to CC Sabathia

The Yankees found out they will not land Japanese ace-slash-slugger Shohei Ohtani last weekend. He prefers the West Coast, and informed the Yankees he will not sign with them. Bummer. Ohtani is a lot of fun. He also has a chance to be insanely good. He’d have fit into the youth movement nicely. Alas.

Sonny with a Lack of Run Support [2017 Season Review]

Going into Spring Training this year, the Yankees really had no idea what their 2018 rotation would look like. Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia were going to be free agents, Masahiro Tanaka could opt out this winter, and the other two spots were wide open. The hope was Luis Severino would grab one of those […] The post Sonny with a Lack of Run Support [2017 Season Review] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
