Blame ESPN for Sabathia and his 12 wins not making the All-Star team. They continue to man-love and lobby for pitchers like Felix Hernandez and anyone with a low ERA. They robbed CC of the Cy Young last year. It goes on. Pitchers who have the luxury of pitching with a lead, like Sabathia, are expected to throw strikes and eat innings. They're going to give up a few extra solo shots in the process... and it keeps you from any personal recognition. He'll probably get some back-handed injury slot open for him to join the All Stars if he wants. ESPN will sleep better. I'd say "to heck with it."

CC was robbed. Though he should say "to heck with it" ...
CC is a humble Gentleman.
Don't know that he would tell them to "shove it".
Pitching rotation is managed poorly these days.
Years ago, when a pitcher got into trouble, the Manager let him pitch his way through or out of the jam; whatever the outcome.
Now, they send a pitcher out to face ONE player.
And the Umps are making bad calls ... Costing teams games.
The worst call by Jim Joyce last year robbing Armando Galarraga of a perfect game. Selig should have reversed the call and awarded the perfect game to Galarraga. Pitching a perfect game
is rare, and being robbed of one ... OUCH!
