“I’m going start to start,” Sabathia said before the All Star break. “I go out one start and feel like I can pitch five more years. I go out another start and I’m feeling done. But if I can stay healthy — if my knee holds up — hopefully I’ll play one more.”
As for that one more championship he’s chasing, Sabathia likes what he’s seeing from his club.
“We had that good stretch early, but I still feel like we’re going to play better,” he said. “I’m still waiting for us to play well, if that makes sense. It’s encouraging.”
Sabathia signed a one year deal with the Yanks in the offseason worth $10 million. He currently holds a 6-4 record with a 3.51 ERA in 18 starts for the Bombers. Should he pitch in 2019, and should it be with the Bombers, it will be his 10th year in pinstripes.
