Workhorse hurler C.C. Sabathia is said to be weighing other factors besides the sheer amount of money potential suitors might toss his way this winter, and I applaud such careful consideration.

With that in mind — and I write this as a totally objective observer who has no personal interest in Mr. Sabathia returning to the American League, where he’ll never again represent an obstacle to the New York Mets’ postseason aspirations  — I would like to remind the free agent zillionaire-to-be that he’s never spent a full winter in Wisconsin.  If he chooses to do so, he’ll soon learn Milwaukee’s frosty climate is not fit for human inhabitants, a fact confirmed by the photographic evidence above. It’s so fucking cold THEY HAD TO CANCEL A DIE KREUZEN INSTORE.  I don’t think anything else needs to be said.
