CC Sabathia's previous spring training start was nothing short of a disaster.
He lasted only 1 2/3 innings while surrendering five earned runs on six hits.
This included a long home run off the bat of former Yankee slugger Gary Sheffield.
Luckily for Sabathia, spring statistics are as useless as a salad to him.
He will have two chances to find gold tonight on the mound, whether it be from a leprechaun or from his Pirate opponents.
Sabathia will pitch in his first televised game as a Yankee via a YES Network spring training telecast.
He will ironically do so on a day filled with almost as much green as is now overflowing from his wallet.
The results may not mean much of anything, but it will be exciting to finally witness Sabathia firsthand in pinstripes.
This could be the start of a beautiful relationship.
