CC Sabathia Gained A Bunch Of Weight, On Purpose

Yankees starter CC Sabathia (the epithet "Yankees ace" is probably long out-of-date, as he's coming off two very rough seasons) reported to camp at 305 pounds, about 30 pounds heavier than he was last spring. That's good, if only because he doesn't look like a stranger. But Sabathia believes his regained bulk should… » 2/23/15 8:45am 2/23/15 8:45am

CC Sabathia Is Skinny Now And It's Weird

This screengrab of a gaunt-looking CC Sabathia at last night's Knicks game is making the rounds, and it's damn near disturbing. Is he...OK? We are happy to report that Sabathia is healthy, maybe healthier than he's been in decades. » 2/13/14 4:51pm 2/13/14 4:51pm

Report: A Bunch Of Athletes Run Sketchy Charities

Two weeks ago, Deadspin's very own Anonymous PR Guy wrote of a former client, "He had a charity, too, which was simply a front to pay his family members (as most athlete charities are)." A New York Post report yesterday bears him out. » 7/02/12 11:15am 7/02/12 11:15am

Last Night's Winner: Felix Hernandez's Chances Of Not Getting Jobbed…

In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like Felix Hernandez, who probably locked up his Cy Young last night along about the time the Rays hung their seventh run on CC Sabathia. » 9/24/10 1:15pm 9/24/10 1:15pm

Phillies, Angels Team Up To Stop Yankees

A simple error by the MLB web team or wishful thinking by our Buddy Bud? Or is C.C. Sabathia so intimidating it takes the Angels lineup and all four Philly starters to bring him down? » 10/14/09 6:45pm 10/14/09 6:45pm

Resistance Is Futile: Yankees Assimilate Sabathia

So thanks for getting my hopes up. CC Sabathia is currently visiting the San Francisco Bay Area — he was born in the northern Calif. hamlet of Vallejo — and speculation was that he was flirting with the idea of becoming a Giant. And when you think about it, who wouldn't want to pitch at AT&T Park? But that pesky Brian… » 12/10/08 9:30am 12/10/08 9:30am

The Sabathia Subway Series Has Begun

Both the Mets and Yankees believe that they have one more large object to intsall in their brand new ballparks, and it ain't a deep fryer; although it will consume many, many cheese fries.

CC Sabathia Supports Print Media

That's quite an ad taken out by CC Sabathia in today's Cleveland Plain Dealer, thanking Clevelandities "for 10 great years," for their love and support, etc., etc. Also I think there are some movie reviews in there, and today's Dilbert (newspaper space is at a premium these days).

Wisconsin Welcomes Carsten Charles Sabathia

I didn't know this, but apparently a local restaurant chain dustributes discounted hamburgers each time the Brewers score five or more runs. Not surprisingly, this is causing a bigger stir in Milwaukee than the arrival of CC Sabathia from the Indians ... but CC is a close second. » 7/09/08 1:20pm 7/09/08 1:20pm

On Vincent Gallo, Black Gallagher And Rotten.com Videos



This video has been online for about a year now, but I just saw it for the first time today. It's brutal, punishing and so uncalled for that it should come with a Tipper Gore warning. It's from 2001, when my immortal beloved Rick Ankiel was still struggling with his "control" and some minor league fans were letting… » 7/09/08 11:45am 7/09/08 11:45am
