CC Sabathia has made it clear that he wants to return to the Yankees in 2018, saying, “this is my home.” However, the 37-year-old free agent won’t be upset if it doesn’t happen. “If my run is up here — like Joe (Girardi) — I had a great time,” Sabathia said on a Players’ Tribune podcast. “I was here for nine years with some of the best players on the planet, won a World Series, (these are the) greatest fans ever. I was a Yankee. I can say that. But no, I’m good with it. “It’s weird, I’m good with baseball however it shakes out. If I’m done next year, if I’m done the year after, it is what it is. This is all borrowed time for me. This is extra. I’m just having fun.” Sabathia went 14-5 with a 3.69 ERA in 27 starts during the regular season, and he seems like a good candidate for a one-year deal to stay in the Bronx. The 17-year veteran was even better in the playoffs, going 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA in four starts. But Sabathia’s magic finally ran out in Game 7 of the ALCS in Houston, when he failed to get through the fourth inning, as the team’s exciting postseason run came to an end.
