CC is OK with All-Star snub
CC Sabathia is 11-4 with a 3.05 ERA in 18 starts, so he’s pretty pleased with his first half of the season. He’s also not all that upset at being left off the American League All-Star roster.
“Had I been eligible to pitch, I probably would have been a little more disappointed,” Sabathia said. “I felt like I’ve had a pretty good first half, but there’s a lot of guys pitching well. Guys are having great years. I’ll just keep going.”
Sabathia pitches Sunday, so he’s excluded from working in the Midsummer Classic. He attended last year anyway even though he was ineligible to pitch, but this year he’s taking his family to the Bahamas.
“It’s always an honor to make the All-Star team, but it’s always good to have time off,” Sabathia said. “You never get three or four days off in the summer. This is our time to do it, so I’ll enjoy it. I made my plans a long time ago.”
