Six hits and two walks, wrapped around an error by Rob Refsnyder - (playing 3B, by the way.)
Sabathia has now pitched three games, thrown 7.1 innings and given up six earned runs. He's walked four batters.
It's too early, right? Way too early. He's perfecting the slurve. He's throwing 60 percent, conserving his bullets, right? No time to panic. No time to worry. CC's not worried. Girardi is certainly not worried. You don't see Cashman worrying, do you? Why worry? It's March. Technically, it's not even spring, technically. Nobody's worried. It's way too early to start worrying. So count me firmly in the camp of NOT WORRIED.
Besides, we can always go to the replacement starter.
