The New York Yankees are off to a phenomenal start to their 2018 campaign and their winning ways continued on Sunday in a come-from-behind, walk-off win over the Cleveland Indians.

While there are a number of stellar performances to speak of when discussing the Yankees rosters, one veteran Yankee is putting in some of his best work in recent years: C.C. Sabathia.

Sabathia, 37, has the lowest ERA, 1.39, of any Yankee with more than 2 innings pitch and while he is still enjoying success at this juncture in his career, he plans to retire should this promising Yankee team win the World Series.

“I want one more parade and pretty sure that will be it,” Sabathia said, according to George A. King III of the New York Post.

“I thought I had it last year.’’

“That’s what you play for,’’ Sabathia said of winning another World Series title before retiring. “But you got to get it first.’’

Sabathia was a member of the 2009 Yankees team that won the championship, almost 10 years ago.

“You always want that feeling. It feels like 20 seasons [ago],’’ Sabathia said.

“That’s the only thing you think of after you win the first one, you think about the next one,’’ Sabathia said. “Everyone around here is itching for the next one.’’

The New York Yankees expect to be busy this offseason, as they usually are, and among the teams trying to lure Gerrit Cole to join their rotation.
