There was some debate about which Yankees starter should pitch the second game this season. There was never any debate about who would start Opening Day.

For the third year in a row, it’s CC Sabathia.

“He was not on the bubble,” Joe Girardi said. “His spot in the rotation really wasn’t up for discussion. For him (spring training) was to get ready.”
