New school analytic fans will tell you that wins and loses don't matter for pitchers. I think that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Ask CC Sabathia how much a win means to him right now. I guarantee that's the ONLY stat he cares about right now. Tonight Big CC has a chance to get his first win of the season against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are currently 3 games behind the AL East first place Yankees. CC should already have wins just ask Girardi, "He's pitched well enough to win in two or three games, We just haven't scored a lot of runs."
