The Brewers have agreed to acquire LHP C.C. Sabathia from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for OF/1B Matt LaPorta.
ESPN.com says the Brewers and the Indians agreed in principle to a deal for the reigning AL Cy Young on Sunday. The deal is contingent on paperwork being finished and the exchange of medical records.
I say this is the most exciting move of a lackluster season. The Brewers are coming on like gangbusters, having won 5 of their last 6 and bounding into a tie for second place in the NLC, being 3.5 back from the Cubs. Adding Sabathia to the Ben Sheets punch might just be enough for Cubs to blame their impending implosion on.
