C.C. Sabathia Doesn’t Like When You Throw at His Teammates (Video)
While A-Rod may get a bum rap among both press and fans, he should take comfort in knowing that at least someone has his back. And that someone is giant Yanks pitcher C.C. Sabathia.
On Saturday, A-Rod was catching a little heat from Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer, and C.C. Sabathia was the first guy out of the dugout.
Oberholtzer’s actions were egregious enough to get him summarily tossed from the game, so it’s not like his intentions were unclear. However, to see a pitcher, of all positions, come to the aid of A-Rod, of all players, is a pretty crazy sight to behold.

Like most baseball confrontations, the fallout was much ado about nothing, but we do get to see Brett Oberholtzer throw a little fit in the dugout. That’s almost as much fun as Sabathia’s reaction. And way more fun than A-Rod’s, who sat there like a robot while the whole thing unfolded.
