It’s not like CC Sabathia to roll over and give up. But that’s exactly what the New York Yankees starter did in response to Jim Rice.

CC Sabathia has always been the New York Yankees player voted “Most Likely to Not Give a Crap About the Media.” In fact, he just absolutely torched them.

With Boston Red Sox legend Jim Rice responding harshly to Sabathia calling the Sox “weak” for attempting to bunt on him all night on Thursday, Rice didn’t hold back.

Unwilling to be outdone, Sabathia made his response today, much to everyone’s entertainment.


Sabathia ended up using the joke against him to make Rice look like an even bigger joke. What a champ.

But if we’re going to be honest here, Sabathia’s weight makes him a better pitcher. It’s true, we’ve done the research.

Rice meant to shut down Sabathia and instead likely fired him right back up. We know CC feeds off of his own anger and this little exchange with Rice might just propel him to greatness during the month of September and hopefully October.

Rice was right about one thing; Sabathia IS hungry. Now he’s just hungry for revenge and he got it.

We are not worthy of you, CC.
