After helping the Yankees win their 27th Championship, Jose Molina was not resigned by the Yankees, replaced instead by Johnny-come-lately Francisco "I'm going to take your job next year" Cervelli. Molina, interviewed yesterday, mentioned the fact that he "taught [Cervelli] everything I know." Molina was behind the plate yesterday in a game where Cervelli took a fastball off the helmet, leaving him with a concussion. Coincidence? Molina could be heard from the parking lot yelling, "Is this how you repay me!" Let's just say the next Toronto-Yankees game should be interesting. Jamie Hoffman has already vowed to slide hard on any hit, flyball, routine grounder, or strike out.
Then, this morning, the Daily News released a column by Jon Harper in which he profiles CC Sabathia. The column ends with a quote from Sabathia, in which he states, "After getting a taste of winning in New York, and all the history, I don't know why anyone would leave." That was clearly a shot at Alex Rodriguez for opting out of his Contract with New York a year before Sabathia even signed with the team. And while that may seem a rash conclusion, there is nothing else going on in baseball right now, so shut up about it.
