Sabathia and Lee Get Comfy in 2009

The New York Yankees opened their brand spanking new Yankee Stadium on April 16, 2009, against the Cleveland Indians. In that opener, the Yankees' CC Sabathia faced off against the Indians' Cliff Lee, with Lee prevailing, 10-2. Just over six months later, the Yankees hosted the first World Series game ever at the new Yankee Stadium, and once again, Sabathia and Lee faced off against each other, however this time, Lee was pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies. Two stadium debuts, same pitchers. Ironically, both pitchers were also traded by the Cleveland Indians a year after capturing Cy Young awards.
