CC Sabathia is back in action after some intestinal discomfort yesterday. He will throw BP today.
Here are the pitching assignments today for live BP:
Field 1 (starting at 12:25): Melancon, Tomko, Hacker, Brackman, De La Rosa, Claggett, Jackson.
Field 2: (starting at 12:25): Marte, Sabathia, Wang, Hughes, Aceves, Ramirez.
Melancon will be facing Cano, Jeter, Austin Jackson and Austin Romine. I’m planning to watch that then head over to see CC, CMW and Hughes.
Mark Feinsand, Tyler Kepner and I were talking to CC this morning about football. Mark is a Redskins fan, Tyler loves the Eagles, I’m with the Patriots and CC is a Raiders fan. CC was telling us about tailgating at Oakland Coliseum and playing tight end in high school.
He was recruited to play at UCLA and Cal but was going to go to Hawaii because they were willing to let him play football and baseball. “Then I got picked in the first round,” he said.
CC is a big JaMarcus Russell fan and believes he can be a good QB if he gets some time and decent receiver or two.
I’m not going to read a lot into a casual conversation on a Sunday morning. But CC really seems like a good dude.
