NEW YORK (AP) – Looting an opponent for CC Sabathia
The Yankees of New York gave Sabathia a $ 500,000 performance bonus even though the 38-year-old left-hander was kicked out of his home The regular season kickoff is six six thousand before the 155 innings specified in his contract for payment.
Sabathia beat Jesus Sucre from Tampa Bay, who on September 27, with his 55th pitch of the night, launched the sixth inning a pitch behind Austin Romine in the top half.
"We thought the Yankees were a very nice gesture," said Sabathia's agent Kyle Thousand of Roc Nation Sports on Monday to The Associated Press. "CC was very grateful and very happy to be back next year and hopefully win a championship."

Sabathia beat Jake Bauers on the ankles of his right hand with a 88 mph fastball with two exits in the fifth inning. Kittredge threw a fastball of 93 mph behind Romine's neck, his first pitch in the sixth, and the panel umpire Vic Carapazza warned a warning to both benches.

"I do not really think that money depends on money, I think," Sabathia said after the game. "I just had the feeling that it was the right thing."
