There are many reasons I like the cut of CC Sabathia’s jib. This is the latest:
Rain can delay Friday’s Game 1 of the ALCS between the Yankees and Angels, which would give starter CC Sabathia time to play his favorite video game.
“I’m pretty relaxed, hanging out,” Sabathia said. “It just gives me a lot of time to play R.B.I.”
In R.B.I. Baseball, the 1980s video game that is popular in the Yankees’ clubhouse, Sabathia’s favorite player is Bert Blyleven of the 1987 Minnesota Twins.
I like both the game and that he chooses Blyleven.
If he had said Hardball Baseball for the C64, I probably would have started a fan club chapter. Has there ever been a better #2 hitter than Guy Jose? And how unhittable was Pepi Perez’ screwball?
