ANAHIM – As SS Sabatian sits on the abyss to become the 17th man to join the 3000 fighter club, veteran Yankees Hurler was asked to think of the first breath he recorded in the Premier League uniform.
This was the debut of Sabathia's big league on April 8,
ANAHEIM – Like
This happened in the debut of Sabatian's big league on April 8, 2001, in front of Orioles for the Indians in what was then called Jacobs Field. Jeff Connie took Sabbathie deep for the first inn, the three-time homer, and Sabbathia responded with the blow of Mike Kinkade, who was looking at five terrains.
"I remember thinking this was somehow because I faced Mike Kinkade in a group in the Little Leagues," Sabatiya said. – I mean, it's Cal Ripken. I remember that Mike saw many things that were coming in the Little Leagues, and he was the first blow, "Eh."
Sabathia has more than offset this in the 19 consecutive seasons with its 2994 breakthroughs at the start of Wednesday, ranking third amongst all left-handers behind Randy Johnson (4,875) and Steve Carlton (4,136). Sabathia will not catch these legends before retiring at the end of the season, but John Smoltz (16th all time) is within 3 084.
"It's great, especially this short list of left-handed people," Sabatiya said. "Joining this list would be cool, but that's something I can not think of now. I focus on being strong enough to help the team win. to get away from the way it was early. "
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he would be "pumped" to witness the history of Sabatian, especially if this happened in Anaheim. Boon has regularly attended Grandma A, where his father Bob has captured the Angels from 1982-88.
"I grew up in this game, I love it all," Boone said. "I was here when Rod Caru got 3,000 hits when Reggie (Jackson) hit 500 (Hoomers) when Don Sutton received 3,000 take-offs." These figures I'm nostalgic I love the story of the game I have to play against, be a teammate , and now to be his manager, he's someone I have a lot of respect for. "
Sabathia – who entered his 247th career victory in his last start – will have a significant applause section on his hand as he pursues a cornerstone. He said his family would fly through New Jersey for a game on Wednesday and also have family members who travel to Anaheim from his home town of Valeo, California.
"I do not think you're blocking him from your mind," Sabatiya said. – That's right. It's right there, so I'll just try to make terrains and I will not think about it until I get to two shots and make terrains. "
Ready and waiting
"I still feel pain and soreness, but the way I played last night was obviously positive," Frazier said. "I woke up today and I felt better than last night, so this is another positive thing.
Although Athletic Sports Coach Steve Donehwu recorded the Fraser ribbon after he scored his 12-inch victim, Fraser said he felt some annoyance discomfort during his next adventure, the 14th inertial stroke.
"We appreciated it and it did not look so bad," Boone said. "He's wrapped up here when he's come in after he's got some treatment after the game, the swelling is pretty small, I think the biggest test would be how he woke up and how he felt while he was moving around. "
Gary Sanchez was allowed to return after playing in a small Charleston Class rehabilitation league on Monday without reporting any problems with his left calf strain. Bun said Sanchez would be activated by the injured list on Wednesday.
After Sanchez's return, the Yankees hope to return some of their other stars in the near future. General Manager Brian Kashman said Giancarlo Stanton (left bicep strain) or Troy Toulovski (left calf) could be the next players to return from the injured list.
That date in Yankee history
April 23, 2000: Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams became the first pair of teammates in the history of the Grand League to homer on both sides of the board in the same game. The Yankees beat Blue Jays, 10-7, in Toronto.
