C.C. Sabathia Can’t Find Babysitter for Nick Swisher-Joanna Garcia Wedding

Nick Swisher and Joanna Garcia are going to have a little leftover — check that, a lot of leftover — filet mignon at their wedding in Palm Beach this weekend.  Swisher’s teammate, 300-pound hurler C.C. Sabathia, won’t be attending the couple’s wedding.  The reason: he can’t find a babysitter.

Ben Maller brought our attention to a mini interview Sabathia did with Jill Martin of the NY Post at the Knicks-Timberwolves game on Monday night.  “We can’t get a babysitter.  I have four kids at home,” Sabathia said.  “My mother doesn’t want to come out and babysit.  We’re going to have to just send a gift.”

This almost sounds like some kind of inside joke between Sabathia and Swisher.  First of all, C.C. makes his mom sound a little cold.  Instead of saying “she can’t come out” he said “she doesn’t want to.”  I don’t know about you, but that sounds to me like he’s unhappy with her for not helping out.  Second of all, how does a guy who makes $23 million a year not have the world’s greatest nanny?  Maybe the Sabathias are against leaving their children with someone who was at one point a stranger.

Either that, or C.C. and his wife, Amber, just have no desire to attend the wedding.
