CC not great but Switch Pitcher is the Story

CC Sabathia had his final tuneup before it counts and wasn't too great. He actually had a poor spring but I don't think anyone has shown any concern and I actually feel the same way. He knows what he has to do and I am sure he will be find on Sunday night in Boston. He pitched 4 2/3 innings giving up 8 hits and 5 runs this afternoon with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. Pat Venditte came on in relief of him, he is the switch pitcher and stole the show. He pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up 2 hits and 1 run but he was a attraction to say the least. Sabathia didn't even know he could throw with both hands, he said I came out saw a lefty coming in then saw a right hander and though oh he must of gotten hurt but then realized it was the same pitcher. He has put up good minor league numbers but is still considered a show more then anything. To his credit he was humbled by the experience and said it is up to him to be more then a show. The audio is up on the lohud yankees blog. Robinson Cano stayed hot going 2-4 with a solo homerun. Nick Swisher was 1-4 with his first homerun, Jorge Posada was 2-3 with 2 rbi and a walk. Curtis Granderson was 1-4 with 1 rbi, Juan Miranda was 1-4 with a rbi and Kevin Russo was 1-4. Robinson Cano remains hot, so far the 5th spot is really cooperating with him. Nick Swisher is having a good spring and so is Jorge Posada, the lineup looks ready to go. The Yankees will play the Blue Jays at 7:00PM at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
