C.C. Sabathia gives Tribe a big lift

C.C. was awesome today in his first start of the season, leading the Indians to a much-needed 2-1 victory over the Twins to avoid the sweep. The offense is still under-performing, but the pitching staff looks great now that Sabathia is healthy. The bullpen delivered another fine performance, and Bob Wickman is starting to settle back in as a solid closer.

As for the offense, it looks like they could use some help from a healthy Juan Gonzalez. I hate to send Sizemore back to AAA, but it might be necessary when Juan gets healthy.
