(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo, you provide the caption, and then hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

After the signing announcement of C.C., the Yankees had to tear out and widen the stairs into the dugout. Here we see photographic evidence of the first "test fitting."

Pictured: CC Sabathia who the Yankees signed to a $161M contract this winter, largely because he's the only current player in MLB who can take the pressure off ARod in the playoffs by being a bigger choker.

CC: "I'm sick of all your stereotypes and cheap jokes! The overweight individuals in this country are just as smart and talented and hard working as everybody else. And they're going to make their voices heard! All they need is a leader. Hmph...I'll work harder than ever before and show the world that overweight people are not undisciplined, lazy and irresponsible."

$160M and a chance at a World Series ring were certainly a nice touch, but the 'bottomless' oversized Dairy Queen sundae helmet was what really sold CC on coming to Yankees.

First, I've gotta split my news conference with the walking disabled list, A.J. Burnett. Now, I've gotta help build the stadium? I really should have read that contract before I signed it.
