CC is on track
Today is defense day here at Steinbrenner Field, as the Yankees are lined up in the outfield hitting cutoff men at the big ballpark while the infielders roam the back fields. Somebody forgot to pay the heating bill, also — it’s only in the 50s here, with light jackets a requirement for attendance at the park.
Didn’t get a chance to address this much yesterday, but CC Sabathia is lining up as the Yankees’ Opening Day starter — in a development that should really surprise no one. Joe Girardi hasn’t officially committed, but he’s giving every indication that the thought is on the right track.
Sabathia will start the March 6 game vs. Detroit, beginning the ‘real’ rotation, while the Yankees will piece together starters for the games that kick off Feb. 25 at Dunedin — just five quick days away.
