Players of the night
CC Sabathia - Yankees
8 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 10 K
Yes, the Yanks gave Sabathia a boat load of money, but - at least in year one - isn't this pretty much what they wanted? New York is in first by 6.5 games and Sabathia is one of the best pitchers in the AL.
CC is second in wins, 11th in ERA, eighth in strikeouts. Can't ask for much more, in real life or fantasy.
More, after the jump...
LF Hideki Matsui - Yankees
4-5, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 4 R
Godzilla may get lost in the all the Yankee star power, but he's putting together another solid year. Don't let his .269 batting average fool you, this is a great hitter. In advanced fantasy leagues, ones that count efficiency, Matsui is even more valuable.
