The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal’s Tom Haudricourt. is reporting the Indians and Brewers have completed a trade sending P C.C. Sabathia to Milwaukee in exchange for OF Matt LaPorta. There are a pair of additional prospects heading to Cleveland, but they’ve yet to be identified, according to Haudricourt.
Though I’m not thrilled to see Sabathia arrive in the NL, even for what might only be a 3 month rental, from a Mets perspective, I’m glad he won’t be part of a 1-2 tandem in Philly with Cole Hamels. Conversely, I’m no longer liking the chances of the NL Wild Card emerging from the East.
Perhaps this was not the greatest afternoon for the Amazins’ to begin selling the above jersey.
