Captain Cheeseburger Enjoys Brats
C.C. Sabathia has reportedly (but not officially) been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for a package deal highlighted by Class Double-A Huntsville Stars center fielder Matt LaPorta and two other prospects.
The Cleveland Indians lefty ace is 6-8 midway through the season with a 3.83 ERA and 123 strikeouts.
Obviously, there are two sides to this trade: C.C. is coming and C.C. is going. I'm sure this fires up Brewers fans, who've had to deal with a shaky rotation led by Ben Sheets and ....Jeff Suppan? Then there are the Cleveland fans, who have a couple unknown prospects and a top farm kid to possibly make an impact on their team's future.
