    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Re: 2012 CC Sabathia performance thread

    I almost started this thread the other day with the same news.

    He's lost 15 lbs so far. He said it himself when he was interviewed at the half of the Knicks game on MLK Day.

    He'll gain it all back during the season. He looked as fat as ever by the time October rolled around last year, after losing 30 or so pounds in the offseason.

    CC said that the goal was keeping it off during the season. He was hiring a trainer for that.

    I hope he hires a dietician, too. I'm not trying to be funny - with his money and his weight problem he should have one.

    I actually think it was that. I think losing the 15lbs to begin with shows that he takes this job seriously. Hopefully he can piece it together.

    And Jesus, he looks different when he's skinnier.

    Can someone do his pudgy vs skinny splits? Yes, I'm serious.

    He was on Fox & Friends this morning along with Adrian Gonzales and he indeed looked svelte.

    Here's hoping it makes a difference!

    Re: 2012 CC Sabathia performance thread

    With Tim Wakefield and Javier Vazquez retired, CC now becomes the active strikeout leader in the league with 2,017.

    1) CC Sabathia - 2,017
    2) Kevin Millwood - 1,976
    3) Roy Halladay - 1,934
    4) Livan Hernandez -1,928
    5) Johan Santana - 1,877

    Only Halladay may give him a run. He's likely to hold that title for a while.

    Re: 2012 CC Sabathia performance thread

    CC is younger than Halladay. I'm not worried.

    Halladay is in much better shape and takes much greater care of himself than CC

    Is there any evidence that being overweight is a problem for pitchers in terms of injuries? I mean, this guy isn't running marathons.

    Exactly. I bet CC retires with more K's than Halladay.

    CC can retire with more strikeouts than Doc. Doc can still be the active strikeout leader for one or two seasons.

    Well I looked around and it seems the hardball times did an article on where or not size matters and it seems overweight pitchers last longer and out perform their skinnier counterparts.

    Seems like baseball just does away with conventional athletic wisdom.

    Just like the whole leftys last longer adage. I don't know if it's true, but it always seems like it.

    Re: 2012 CC Sabathia performance thread

    It's possible there is a sample bias involved though. How many overweight pitchers actually make it to the big leagues? I'm not going to read that entire study to find out if this was true or accounted for, but it seems to me that it a player of Sabathia's weight is rare in the majors. To make it to that level you have to be pretty good at that weight. (Anecdotal here) There are a lot of mediocre pitchers who are in somewhere between slightly below average and above average shape.

    But of course weight can be a problem long-term. The extra weight is bad for your knees, and guess what Sabathia has already had problems with? That's right, two knee surgeries already. You'd be stunned at what a little weight can do as well. Dropping from 290 to 250 would still make him overweight but his knees would probably feel a lot better.

    So, he says he lost 10 to 15 pounds but that picture above looks like he lost 30 to 40. The numbers don't add up.....either that or the picture has been photoshopped.

    He lost weight last offseason as well only to gain it back during the season.

    Hopefully he keeps it off but it's not like you can actually say his weight has ever hindered or hurt his performance in any way.

    At the end of the day his play on the field is what matters.

    Re: 2012 CC Sabathia performance thread

    given the length of yankees commitment to him it's pretty good to have him save the wear and tear anyway he can
    always reasonable
