    Jays were in on CC...stays a Yank

    Can someone explain why Jays mgmt would have interest in CeeCee Sabatia? He looked washed up last I saw him pitch.

    He can eat steady innings. Nothing spectacular but he keeps the ball on the ground and would likely be a solid #5. Also provides a veteran mentor to the pitching staff, maybe he can teach Stro to dial back on the douchiness.

    Thanks. As a number 5 paid as a number 5 I guess we could do worse.

    CC is not picking the Jays over the Yankees or Angels, but he would be a good signing if it happened.

    Please let us know the last time you saw him pitch... The last time I saw him pitch he looked alright. It was a game against Cleveland in the playoffs, and if I recall right he was cruising along looking good, but maybe Joe left him in too long, and he got beat up in the 6th or 7th.

    I have the YES Network (Yankees Entertainment and Sports) in my cable package, I also am only a couple of hours away from Yankee Stadium. So I've seen CC on TV and live several times. I am not a trained scout. Here are my observations.

    1. He is very fat, but pitches OK.

    That's just my scouting observation. I also read about him in the tabloids (for sale in gas stations and other stores around here), they sometimes have him on the cover. Apparently he went to rehab at the end of 2015, which could explain subpar 14 (knee injury might explain that too) and 15 (drunk as a skunk).

    But in 16 and 17, presumably sober, he was actually decent.

    I believe the Jays would want him to solidify their rotation and based on real and stats scouting think he will be a decent 4th or 5th.
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    They want CC to mentor Stro.

    Damn I wish Buehrle was a lot younger when we acquired him and we kept him for a while. I miss that guy.

    Stro needs guidance on being a pro and an adult. Is Buehrle interested in coaching?

    We don't know if he's even willing to ship out to the West coast at this point in his career. We don't know what his driving motivators are.

    Surely his first choice would be to remain a Yankee, but if they acquire another SP and don't have room to offer a surefire rotation spot, that could perhaps steer CC elsewhere.

    Buehrle, Dickey were both very professional during their tenure here and it did nothing for Stroman, doubt CC will have an impact

    well... I mean he just had an outburst because the Red Sox were bunting against him lol. And then there was his bright pink shoes in the fight he was involved in Toronto last year.

    Not sure that Stro will listen to just anyone.
