Brewers Close on Deal for Sabathia

Sunday, July 6, 2008

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting online within the last hour that a deal for CC Sabathia is so close to being done that prospect Matt Laporta has been scratched from tonight's lineup, to avoid injury on the verge on this deal. Two other minor league prospects are included in the deal. The paper is reporting that Sabathia has already been penciled in for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.


UPDATE: Deal is official, Sabathia is a Brewer. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that the Brewers will be sending OF Matt LaPorta, LHP Zach Jackson, and relief pitcher Rob Bryson.

Yep, those Cubs choked last year, too - right after the beat out the Poo Crew for the NL Central. Watch for a repeat this year.

Great deal for both teams, the Indians had to get something in return and the Brewers are def. going for it. CC and Sheets will be gone next year so you know the Yanks will get one or Both of them.
