CC: Siiiim-ply Haaaa-ving...

Go up to your attic or down to your basement and grab that rapidly disintegrating cardboard box that smells vaguely of pine. Separate that rusty gaggle of hooks, oil up the screws in your tree stand, and sprinkle some cinnamon on your eggnog, 'cause it's Christmas! Why? Because CC made it so!

The big lefty is holding the reins to a sleigh full of fastballs, but he doesn't come in through the chimney like most commercialized gift-giving strangers. No, he launches a 98-mph heater through your frosted window pane, knocking over whatever carols mights be at your spinnet. If you've been good, you get one or more of his Spectrum parallel cards, but if you're on the naughty list, expect a little chin music.

Don't think that this Christmas-in-April event has put CC behind schedule for the real 2009 Christmas season. No sir, Sabathia made a point to hit the stores on December 26, and now he has a whole closet full of half-price wrapping paper, not to mention enough "To: / From:" tags to last him well through 2016. And those Hallmark Keepsake ornaments? Let's just say that if you're after that rare 1983 Frosty Friends to complete your collection, you know who to call.
