We haven’t seen much of CC Sabathia this spring. The big guy has only thrown eight official innings in camp, though he did also start a minor league game last week. Eight innings, four runs, that’s it. No one cares though, because he’s CC Sabathia and represents all that is right in the Yankees universe. Here’s the starting nine…

1B Mark Teixeira
2B Robinson Cano
3B Alex Rodriguez
DH Raul Ibanez
C Russell Martin
LF Andruw Jones
CF Brett Gardner
RF Justin Maxwell
