“CC couldn’t care less about the dots.”

I'm a sucker for any story about punctuation and grammar, and this article about how new Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia lost the dots from his name is no different:

CC Sabathia tale is a period piece

TAMPA – CC Sabathia now comes in pinstripes, but he’s still without the dots.
For the 7½ seasons he pitched for the Cleveland Indians, Sabathia always was known as “C.C.” Then last July 7, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, and the dots after the initials disappeared.

The New York Yankees paid $161 million this winter to sign Sabathia as a free agent, but that wasn’t enough to buy them punctuation. The Yankees’ spring roster lists him as CC, and apparently it’s going to stay that way.
