The Cleveland Indians have risen the white flag, trading their ace C.C. Sabthia to the Milwaukee Brewers in a deal that involves top first base prospect Matt Laporta.
In the end, Sabathia’s non-agreeance to a fair extension by the Indians was probably seen as a sign that he’d be flying the coop in the offseason when the Indians would lose him for nothing.
Look for Sabathia to make his big league debut tomorrow night in Milwaukee at Miller Park, and to push the Brewers into the playoffs. They’re going to be a force now with Ben Sheets and Sabathia at the top of that rotation.
