CC Sabathia allowed six runs on seven hits, including one home run, walked five, and struck out five but still got the win as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox 9-6 Sunday night as New York took two out of three at Fenway Park this weekend.

Sure, he got the win, but that doesn't make this an encouraging outing. Sabathia has fallen on difficult times and seems to be struggling to deal with declining velocity/quality of pitches. He has more name value than actual statistical value for the remainder of this season, and while he throws a lot of innings and will battle, I'm not taking the plunge any more this fantasy baseball season.ANALYST: These types of wins will be harder to come by than in years past, as the Yankees lineup is still just a shell of what it was even two years ago. Owners in shallow leagues with start limits should probably consider dropping Sabathia, though his start Friday at Tampa Bay isn't a terrible matchup.ANALYST:
