Executives around the league will have their eyes on the Cleveland Indians the next few weeks, and more specifically on star pitcher C.C. Sabathia. With the Indians struggling to find a groove and Sabathia a soon-to-be free agent, the Indians may look at trading their ace as the deadline approaches. Sabathia figures to return serious talent were he to be dealt, as young, lefty aces don't grow on trees. The Yankees, Cubs, and Mets all figure to be interested at the deadline, with the Yankees seemingly hoping for a "redo" on what appears to be a mistake on passing on Johan Santana over the winter.
