He only needed two more innings. That’s it. Two more innings and C.C. Sabathia is $500K richer.
This was in response to Rays pitcher Andrew Kittridge throwing behind Sabathia’s catcher, Andrew Romine.
You protect your own, always. For pitchers, you especially have your catcher’s back at all times. They may be masochists and can be SUPER annoying at times, but they take a beating for you every damn day. And they are the first ones protecting you when someone charges the mound.
I’m fired up just writing this post. Well done, C.C.
