Anecdotal CC versus the Yankees

I am not the best at gathering up statistics to back things up but if I am not mistaken, the Yankees are an offense loaded with hitters that go deep into counts and see lots of pitches.  They thrive on wearing out pitchers and waiting for their pitch - not unlike the Indians.

I also know CC is extremely aggressive, attacking hitters inside the strike zone.  Walking few.

One would think this is an advantage for CC, where the Yankees hitters would tend to get behind in counts if utilizing their standard approach.

It seemed to me this year, from naked eye observation, that when teams were aggressive in their at bats early in the count with CC - they could pile up some base hits (relatively speaking of course).

So if the Yankees advanced scouts tell them to look for pitches to swing at early in the zone, perhaps this too can work in CC's favor as he'd be able to keep his pitch count down, presuming he keeps runs off the board and some of that aggressiveness leads to quick outs.  He could go deep into the game(s) that way.

Also, depending on what happens, I'd be interested to see how the Yankees and CC would adjust in a possible second start by the big man.
