What a bad time for the New York Yankees to decide they don't want to fall off their own fiscal cliff.

Here is one thing we can all agree on: CC Sabathia cannot pitch every day.Thankfully for the New York Yankees, neither can Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers or Jared Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels.
