CC gets the nod, twice

Big honors to the big man:

Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed on Thursday that Sabathia will not only start Opening Day on April 6 at Baltimore, but he is lined up to pitch the April 16 home opener at the new $1.5 billion facility.

I'm excited to be able to take the ball the first game of the season and to open up the Stadium," Sabathia said. "It's going to be a lot of fun."
Of course, if he gets lit up in Baltimore, he can prepare for the inevitable sh*tstorm that will await his home opener.

This is why the Yanks went out and got him; he wants the ball in the big moments. We (Yanks fans) all need want him to succeed. I will now commence holding my breath.

Also notable is the fact that Sabathia will have his 3rd start before Joba has his 2nd. Justshows how they can manage Joba's innings without shutting him down at any point.
