BREAKING: C.C. Sabathia To The Brewers!

In an attempt to channel former Pittsburgh Pirates GM Dave Littlefield, the Cleveland Indians GM Mark Shapiro has sent 2007 AL Cy Young winner C.C. Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for two truckloads of Miller Lite, three cases of real Wisconsin cheese and a tub full of bratwursts.

Even though the deal strips Wisconsin of its three biggest assets, it gives the Brewers a formidable one-two punch at the top of the order with Sabathia and Ben Sheets, both of whom are in their contract years.

Is it time for the Cubs (53-36, 1st) to counter the Brewers (49-39, t-2nd, 3.5 GB) acquisition of Sabathia?
