About Last Night: Big Stoppa

When CC Sabathia warms up on the Yankee Stadium mound, “I love it when you call me Big Poppa…” blares out of the speakers. The line is from Notorious B.I.G.’s second single “Big Poppa” which has been Sabathia’s song of choice since he signed with the Yankees way back in 2008. It’s also a bit […]
