Last night, a bearded CC Sabathia had pretty good seats for the Nets game against the Bobcats. Sabathia had knee surgery on Monday, but obviously he’s able to get around. That seems to be a good sign for the Yankees.
I figured we’d start the day with a big picture of the Yankees ace and a few small notes from around baseball.
• Former Yankees reliever Steven Jackson was among five players outrighted by the Pirates yesterday. So was Brandon Moss.
• If you haven’t seen it, Buster Olney has some great World Series notes, including a look at that pivotal Game 5 pitch from Cliff Lee to Edgar Renteria.
• After his big year with the Red Sox, Adrian Beltre has opted for free agency.
• Add Chris Young to that list of Erik Bedard-type starters on the market. The Padres declined Young’s option after shoulder surgery left him limited the past two years.
