Video: CC Sabathia stars in new 'This is SportsCenter' spot

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is the star of the latest "This is SportsCenter" commercial from ESPN. And the video may or may not poke fun at the southpaw's hefty size.

In the spot, Sabathia teams up with anchors Steve Levy and Scott Van Pelt in what essentially turns into a fashion lesson on how to look thin. The ad begins with Sabathia and Levy talking about how much slimmer the vertical stripes on Sabathia's uniform makes him look.

Then, an oversized Van Pelt walks in proudly donning a suit with horizontal stripes, which obviously draws false praise from the other two, who hold their tongue about the style miscue.

It all adds up to yet another great "This is SportsCenter" commercial. Well done, ESPN.
