Honest, and powerful. Also, tough to admit in writing. I wish him and his lovely family well.

I didn't believe CC when it all came out, I thought the timing of it all was really weird and there was something more sinister going on - like some kind of domestic incident that's trying to be kept hush-hush.

After read what CC wrote for the PT, I admit I was absolutely wrong. He was very candid and set the record straight, as to why he announced he had an alcohol problem when he did.

I'm really pulling hard for CC this year. I'm an even bigger fan of his now.

I always liked CC, and it was tough seeing him not having success and struggling as a Yankee. 99% of this game is half mental. And now that he has his mind in a better place, I hope the results follow.

Regardless of the results, I hope he continues down this road and is able to enjoy watching his kids grow up.

When I got sober 13 years ago, it was really tough, and I didn't have the added pressure of a job where so many were counting on me, and a voracious press wanting to hear every juicy detail.

This was really brave of him, and some 2nd guessed his decisions and I am glad that he did what was best for him and his family. To us it is more than a game and to pros it is a game, a vocation and a business. But life should be more important than that.

Way to be CC!

Very courageous of CC. Between this and his press conference where he talked about changing his habits, I think he's going to make it.
