• Setting The Bar For CC In ALDS Game One

    Posted by on October 6th, 2009 · Comments (2)

    Since 2007, CC Sabathia has started against the Minnesota Twins seven times and has never had a game against them where he’s faced less than 25 batters in the process. Further, in these seven games, Sabathia has never allowed more than two earned runs in any of these contests.

    In the last seven times Sabathia has faced the Twins, he’s thrown at least seven innings in the game while allowing one earned run or less in the game five times.

    There is no debate. Since 2007, CC Sabathia has dominated the Minnesota Twins during the regular season. He will face them in the post-season for the first time, ever, in Game One of the 2009 ALDS.

      CC needs to come up big today, as much for his own sake as for the team’s strategic position in this series.

      They have enormous tactical advantages today. They need this first game. To cough this one up would be very bad news psychologically, even if they still survive this round.

      I agree, although I think it would only be psychologically damaging to us and not to the Yanks. The Twins can lose this game and still believe they can win the series so why would the Yanks lose this game and suddenly feel like they can’t win?

      It’ll suck for us if we lose today but I’m quite sure the Yanks can come back from being down 0-1. At least I think so.
