CC on velo: I'll still be good
By Andrew Marchand
CC Sabathia had some laughs with Mike & Mike on ESPN New York 98.7 FM and across the country on ESPN Radio/ESPN2 on Wednesday morning.
When Mike Greenberg mentioned that the second Sabathia pitches in spring, Greenberg's Twitter feed fills up with how hard he is throwing, Sabathia knew the topic he doesn't love was next.
But Sabathia handled the velo question with relative ease. "My velocity is what it is, to be honest with you" Sabathia said. "As [Mike] Golic just said, I've thrown a 1.2 million innings. It is what is at this point. Wherever it is, I'm fine"
Listen to the complete interview:
Sabathia reiterated that he needs to locate and he will be fine, if he does. As we have written about here repeatedly, Sabathia needs to reinvent himself to be successful. He may not use those words, but the fact he recognizes it is important.
