    Yankees fans now worried/pissed that CC Sabathia will miss a Game 7 start because of yesterday’s rain out?

    That’s sort of like every middle-aged man in American lamenting about performance issues for when they met Angelina Jolie for the first time and she says “Take me.”

    Why worry about something that’s never going to occur?

    Game Seven? Really? Have you not been watching the Yankees this post-season?

      Yeah, they’ve been playing close games, games that could easily have gone the other way. I wouldn’t be so dismissive of a game 7.

      You’d never know reading this site that the pitching is good as it has been, that the Yanks are AL East Champs, that they had the best record in the league, that they made it past the Orioles in the ALDS.

      Yes, the team hasn’t been hitting. Yes, Girardi’s panicking. Yes, it’s getting late early. But this isn’t the 62 Mets out there, this is a pretty good team.

      Basically, if I can go full on geek here, CC in game 7was our Light of Galadriel, to be used in darkest times. Now that’s gone, reducing what slim chance we had to nil. It’s not that we really thought the Yanks could pull it off, but if it was going to happen, having CC start two games would be a big driver in making it happen.
