Brewers Land Big One
Reports that pitcher CC Sabathia has been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers have been confirmed. So Prince Fielder finally has a teammate he can call fat. I think this is a win for everyone involved. Fantasy owners have to be happy with a move to the National League for Sabathia, where he will now devour lowly NL Central hitters like so much bratwurst. I also think Ben Sheets owners should be happy as Sheets seems like the type of guy who will flourish with a little less pressure on him. Sabathia has got to be giddy at the prospect of those slimming home pinstripes. Indians fans can take solace in the fact that they at least got a nice prospect in Matt Laporta for Sabathia. Lastly, Brewers fans have to be thrilled to have a bona fide ace who, like them, is fat.
