CC Sabathia was on the His and Hers show today with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith. They talked about his friendship with Kanye West, his expectations for the 2015 seasons after only making eight starts in 2014, how he is reinventing himself as a pitcher, Alex Rodriguez’s adjustment back into the clubhouse and his opinion on a possible 20-second pitch clock to speed up the game. They also obviously talked about Derek Jeter’s retirement and how the team will be so different without his leadership. Sabathia said that he will miss the humor that he brings to the clubhouse and bench.
They went into his love of the Iron Man superhero movie and his love of Captain Crunch cereal towards the end of the interview. Sabathia is fully healthy now, and his goal is to be able to make 30 starts once again. He said that he feels great, which is obviously a positive sign. The Yankees will need a bounce back season from him to be able to return to the playoffs for the first time sine 2012.
