December 10, 2008 – The Yankees added a big piece to their eventually 2009 World Series run when they signed CC Sabathia to a 7-year $161 million deal. Sabathia finished forth in the Cy Young voting in his first year and lead the Yankees to glory when he pitched and beat the Twins once in the ALDS, beat the Angels twice in the ALCS and pitched a great game during game 4 of the World Series which ended being the turning point of the series.
