Goodbye, C.C.

Rumors swirled all week long that Cleveland Indians Ace C.C. Sabathia was going to be traded to one of four teams before his next start on Tuesday, July 8th. Apparently this is a fact as the news services have confirmed that an announcement will be forthcoming on Monday morning that C.C. Sabathia will be traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for three players. Although the details are not 100% confirmed, two of the players are believed to be minor leaguers Matt LaPorta (OF) and Taylor Green (3B).

Good luck to C.C. as he has been a class act ever since he joined the Indians organization. His loyalty and leadership coupled with his tremendous talent will always be appreciated in Cleveland. Here is hoping he can help the Brewers land a playoff spot and then hook up next season with a team that contends every year.
