Default CC Sabathia lost some weight

http://deadspin.com/cc-sabathia-is-s...ird-1522399837

Perhaps last year's 4.78 ERA has him rethinking his whole approach to his game.

What's the O/U on how long it takes someone to bring up Adam Dunn? I'm thinking by post #5.

I can't give a legit reason why and I'm bad for saying it but I don't want him to win 300 games.

"By the fourth, fifth inning, I was usually tired," Sabathia said. "That was something we worked on this offseason. Just making sure I'm ready to go out and pitch a full game."

The real question is, which White Sox player will be in the best shape in their life...

You lose because it was brought up in the OP. Man, talk about a sucker bet. That's like betting on yourself and then throwing the match.

I followed the link and read the story. I suggest doing the same and check his photo. He claims that he's the same weight. If he's the same weight, then I'm the Baron of Westphalia.

Have the Yankees been allowing him to wear his hat sideways?

I know White Sox fans have always disliked that aspect of CC Sabathia, but he does it as a tribute to his youth baseball team which I think is pretty cool.

Good for CC; we'll see if it translates into a rebound year for him. He's one of my favorites so I'm definitely hoping he has enough remaining in that left arm to string together the 4 or 5 more stat-friendly seasons necessary to earn him HOF consideration.

But...he really is showing up like that. It's not some fluff piece.

I don't think it's a matter of him being too heavy, at least based on the photos that I see. It appears to be a matter of cardiovascular conditioning.
