Why is everyone so surprised that CC Sabathia imploded? I prophesied this back in August.
Look, you can pitch that many innings that many years in a row and expect to be fine. And then he goes and pitches on three days' rest four starts in a row. Seriously, Dale "Sink or" Sveum? That's gonna be your legacy? Overworking the best pitcher in the NL so you ruin your chances in the NLDS?
