Okay, here I am, asking 35-year-old, 300-pound CC Sabathia, with a bad knee, to stop the Yankees' losing streak. Here's the crazy part: I am more confident with CC on the mound than any of the other Yankees starters.

I said at the beginning of the season, CC Sabathia was my pick for comeback player of the year and the Big Man is making me look smart right now. Yankees need CC to keep it up and continue learning to pitch with less velocity and more crafty, veteran, good old fashioned "stuff".
