Do you hate the New York Yankees? If you’re a baseball fan outside of New York but still living within the United States, your answer is probably ‘Yes’. But guess what? Starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia is perfectly okay with that. In fact, he thrives off it. And so do the Yankees, he believes.
“Last year, we were the team that everybody loved, that feel-good story. But getting Giancarlo (Stanton) just brings us back to being that hated team. That’s what we like. We want to go out there, put the best team on the field and crush everybody every game.”
There’s nothing wrong with looking at it that way. After all, what’s the point if you’re not in this game for a championship? And for Sabathia specifically, this could be his final season in he big leagues. For now, he’s signed through the 2018 on a one-year deal.
It’s been a busy offseason for the Yankees, one that would start with the addition of NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton. And while there are still holes to filla��primarily starting pitching deptha��this lineup is going to be terrifying for any team to face. And that’s just the way Sabathia likes it.
Last season, the Yankees would fall within one game of the World Series. To most, it was unexpected. But now, they’re out to crush everyone’s dreams.
