CC Sabathia returns to the mound tonight against Justin Verlander.
We finally get that great CC Sabathia-Justin Verlander pitching matchup we've been waiting for … only three days after it was originally supposed to take place. Such was the effect of that rain-suspended Game 1 in the Bronx on Friday night.
This, though, could wind up being even more compelling, since the series is now knotted at one game a piece, and since we don't really know what kind of physical shape either starter will be in after having their throwing schedules disrupted.
This also the fourth straight day these teams have played because the off-day was lost with the rain. That may not matter a whole lot tonight, but it could come into play tomorrow during Game 4…
