Just Call CC Sabathia Butter...
'Cause he's on a roll. 7 straight wins, 14 for the season, and 5 straight starts of 7+ IP and 1 or fewer runs allowed. His fastball is consistently cranking in the mid-to-upper 90s and his slider is practically unhittable. It's nice to know that, for at least one day during a rotation through the lineup, you don't have to think about the inconsistency in the bullpen, the question marks in the rotation, and how the lineup is going to replace A-Rod. On CC's day, you just check the game update every now and then to see how many the Yanks have put up in support of him, because you know he's going to dominate. That's a good feeling.
