Rams Jared Goff Has Big Night, CC Sabathia Loses $500K


LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a big night in an offensive battle against the Minnesota Vikings in Thursday Night Football. Goff posted 465 yards and 5 touchdowns while Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had 400 yards and three touchdowns. The Rams defense made the difference in the exciting shootout and came out with a 38-31 victory. The Rams become only the 10th team in the Super Bowl era to post 30 points in each of their first four wins.


New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia only had to last 7 innings on Thursday to make an extra $500,000. He had an incentive in his 2018 contract to make an extra half a million dollars if he completed 155 innings, and heading into Thursday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, he had 148 innings under his belt. In the bottom of the 6th, the Yankees were up a comfortable 11-0 when Sabathia took the mound and threw a ball at Jesus Sucre in apparent retaliation for an errant throw at one of his teammates earlier in the game. Sabathia was ejected from the game and therefore lost out on the $500k.  Marc Carig from The Athletic summed it up best when he tweeted, “Holy cow. CC smoked Sucre and cost himself a half million dollars, got ejected from the game, then appeared to grab his crotch while facing the Rays dugout. That’s one of the most bad ass things I’ve ever seen on a ballfield. And one day, when CC Sabathia is done playing, it will be Exhibit A when people ask why he was a beloved teammate.”
