Lose that Weight CC!

So if you haven’t heard, apparantly CC Sabathia has lost 30 pounds since last October. I’m happy for the guy but I’m not sure if this is all good. You might think that this is going to be great for his pitching. Maybe he will throw harder and go deeper into game. Who knows? But here’s my concern. When something is going well, you don’t mess with it. For his entire career, Sabathia hasn’t had any problem going eight strong while throwing 95+. And he’s done this while weighing over 300 pounds. Now he’s down to 280. Will he be alright this year? He probably will, but all I know is that I was completely comfortable with him being his sold 310 pounds. It seemed to work out for him and the Yanks. If CC was struggling to get threw five innings per start and his fastball velo was down, I would say that this is great news. But there was nothing wrong with the guy, so all I can say is that I hope this doesn’t effect his pitching at all. Four days until pitchers and catchers report.
