After finally catching up to the powerful Boston Red Sox, with the two teams tied for first, the New York Yankees have unfortunately fallen back to the second-place position in the AL East standings. With the Yankees not too far behind, it will be no difficult feat for the team to advance in front of the Sox, especially with their ace pitcher CC Sabathia pitching the Bombers to first.
Sabathia has only improved his noteworthy reputation this season by continuing to be the reliable and dominant pitcher he always was. The starting pitcher is once again nominated for the CY Young Award, continues to lead the MLB in wins, maintains an impressive 2.81 ERA and has possessed consistency for his New York team.
I was lucky enough to interview the down-to-earth pitcher on Wednesday at the MLB Fan Cave, where we discussed his involvement with the Pepsi MAX, Field of Dreams Campaign, his decision to remain in New York, the improvements needed to advance to the playoffs without the Wild Card and more.
Here is what we discussed.
