J.A. Happ interrupted CC Sabathia's postgame interview to ask his own question
We're willing to bet that Sabathia has never been interviewed on TV by a teammate immediately after a win. The culprit? Fellow starter
Jump to 2:53 of the clip below to see Happ come out of nowhere with a question for the highly amused Sabathia.
CC Sabathia made his last first start of the season today, but he's not thinking about that: "Maybe later I'll think about it, but when we're in it, nah...we're out there trying to win a championship." pic.twitter.com/wzYWJesl53— YES Network (@YESNetwork) April 13, 2019
Happ even had his own microphone -- though it was really just a can. Very official!
Given Sabathia's career evolution, he's a pretty good guy to talk to about painting the corners of the strike zone, so at least Happ knew who to ask (on behalf of "his friend," of course). Smart man.
