CC: One-Hitter

This CC card celebrates the near-no-hitter Sabathia threw against the Pirates. One of the things that pissed me off that season was not something you would expect. No, I was not upset with the ruling the umpire made that turned a borderline error into a hit. Rather, I thought it was embarrassingly bush-league of the Brewers to petition MLB that the hit be ruled an error. That's just shitty, and I see it as an affront to the baseball gods. I'm glad MLB turned down the Brewers' request, since I think it would have been difficult for me to honestly call this the team's second no-hitter. The drama of the late-inning outs was completely absent from the game as it was played, and so was the pressure on the pitcher.

2009 Topps Sterling "One-Hitter 8/31/08" (3x Patch on Gray Jersey) #3CCR-81 (14/25)

Still, it's a pretty sweet card.

I haven't posted my master CC list in awhile, so here you go.
