Brewers Sign CC Sabathia

Yesterday at 11am the Brewers announced that they traded 4 prospects (most notable is Matt LaPorta) for Cleveland pitcher (and AL Cy Young Award Winner) CC Sabathia to make a run for the play offs. Sabathia made his first start with the Brewers last night in game 2 of their series against the Colorado Rockies. In this opening game the Brewers beat the Rockies 7 to 3 with a 3 run home run by Ryan Braun!
It has been 26 years since the Brewers were able to celebrate a playoff berth. Hopefully Sheets and Sabathia prove to be the duo the Brewers need pitching for them to make it possible in '08.
