The Yankees are 1-6 in Sabathias last 7 Saturday starts and 99-45 in Sabathias last 144 starts as a favorite. The Twins are 4-10 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Milones last 5 home starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in Sabathias last 5 starts vs. Twins.
CC has been all over the place this season and has allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last six starts. I just can't just the guy. The Twins have been on fire at home lately and continue to think they can clinch a playoff spot. Give me Minny as more of a fade from CC.
