The New York Yankees have some pretty bad contracts on their hands these days. Alex Rodriguez isn't coming close to earning his $30 million salary, Mark Teixeira isn't worth his $23 million fee and even Derek Jeter is overpaid at close to $16 million.
Thank goodness for CC Sabathia. The Yankees are paying him over $24 million this season, but Sabathia is somehow managing to give them their money's worth.
That's been the case ever since Sabathia first suited up in pinstripes in 2009. He's been everything the Yankees could have asked for, and he's shown no signs of slowing down despite the fact he has over a decade of big league experience under his belt and nearly 2,500 innings on his arm.
Though he's had to battle more than he's used to, Sabathia is once again having a fine season for the Yankees. He's pitched well recently, to boot, and he now finds himself high in the running for the American League Cy Young award.
Here are this week's rankings.
