This is the third straight year where the second Spring Training start has been one to forget for CC Sabathia.  The latest cause for amnesia came today, lasting just 2 2/3 innings against the Nationals at “The Boss."  In said forgettable start, he allowed five runs on six hits; he walked two, and struck out only one.

Sabathia explained why afterwards in the clubhouse saying, “I couldn’t get a count to get a strikeout pitch.  I couldn’t find the plate.  I was all over the place.  My change up was flat and cutting back over the plate, it was just one of those days.”

You would think lucky for him it’s just March 5th.  He left the game and still got a decent ovation; more than a golf clap.  Through the grapevine though
