CC Sabathia starts tonight when the Yankees open a three-game interleague series against the Padres at Petco Park. As they began their day off yesterday, the Yankees were eight games behind the AL East-leading Red Sox and three games out in the wild-card race.
In his three previous outings, Sabathia is 0-2 with an obese 10.93 ERA. He has allowed an alarming 26 hits and seven walks in 14 innings.
Sabathia's ERA this year is 4.65, about 1 point above his career aveerage. He still has a healthy strikeout rate and thus remains a formidable fantasy option. With the Yankees slightly favored tonight and an over/under of 7 in the game, Vegas seems to believe Sabathia will be able to tame the Padres.ANALYST:
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
