Me to CC: Don’t go after my record

CC SabathiaI am hoping that CC Sabathia does not pass me on one particular All-Time record list: most career Home Runs given up by a Yankee pitcher. CC has given up 134 homers while in pinstripes – that’s the 9th most All-Time. If he gives up four more Home Runs, he will tie Lefty Gomez for 8th, and if he gives up five more, he will tie me for 7th. I have up 139 Home Runs between 1966 and 1974. The rest of the Top Ten: Andy Pettite (236); Whitey Ford (228); Ron Guidry (226); Red Ruffing (200); Mel Stottlemyre (171); Mike Mussina (166); and Ralph Terry (133). I’m not in bad company!
