CC Sabathia Has Awful Numbers Against Red Sox This Season, But It’s Still Hard to Bet Against Him

CC Sabathia Has Awful Numbers Against Red Sox This Season, But It's Still Hard to Bet Against Him Editor's note: The following is an excerpt from a longer conversation between Michael Hurley and WFAN.com's Neil Keefe. You can read their entire conversation by clicking here.

The most perplexing part of this year’s Red Sox-Yankees season series has been Mr. CC Sabathia. How in the world can you go 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA against the Red Sox and 17-3 with a 2.40 ERA against everyone else? How? It's ludicrous.

Still, it's just not within my fibers to ever bet against Sabathia. How could you? That said, it's good to know that if he continues his season of stink against Boston on Tuesday night, the Red Sox are in a good position to sweep. That's awesome.

But, as you well know, you can't predict baseball, so I'm prepared for an A.J. Burnett no-hitter on Thursday night.
