CC Sabathia zings ‘bitter’ Jim Rice

CC Sabathia on Friday responded to Jim Rice in the latest development of a back-and-forth between the two.

Sabathia got the win Thursday as his New York Yankees topped the Boston Red Sox 6-2 in the first of a key four-game series between the franchises. The southpaw was upset both during and after the game about the Red Sox trying to bunt on him and take advantage of a shaky knee that landed the pitcher on the disabled list.

After the game, Rice, a Red Sox Hall of Famer and current NESN analyst, told Sabathia to stop complaining and instead go on a diet.

Word of Rice’s criticism got back to Sabathia, who referred to the former outfielder as “bitter.”

Who had Jim Rice and CC Sabathia being at the center of a controversy between the rival clubs this weekend? Things should only get more interesting in the next three games of the series.
