CC Sabathia named ALCS MVPBy
The Big Man is taking home some hardware. CC Sabathia, 2-0 in the ALCS, has earned himself the MVP award for the series. In his two starts against the Angels — one on three days’ rest — Sabathia was utterly dominant. He threw 16 innings and allowed just two earned runs on nine hits and three walks. He struck out 12, and the Angels hit .161/.203/.232 off of him. CC would have pitched a potential Game 7 tomorrow but will instead go up against former teammate Cliff Lee on Wednesday night in Game 1 of the World Series. A-Rod, who killed the ball and was on base five times tonight, deserves a nod as well. Right now, for the Yanks, it’s not about the personal hardware though; it’s about the trophy that is a tantalizing four wins away.
