Yeah basically.  It's basically Sabathia for 1B prospect Matt LaPorta and 3 others.

The Brew Crew should give the Cubbies a run for their money now.

Will he pitch against the Tigers?  I don't want to lose a start, but it's Sabathia against Verlander, so it might help.

I doubt he'll pitch if they are even close to trading him

And this deal makes the Twins deal for Santana look like a steal

Welcome to Milwaukee, CC Sabathia.  You'll be a fine addition to the starting rotation of my favorite MLB team.

I seem to have developed some freakish Brewer-love myself.  Sabathia, Hart and Fielder on my fantasy team.  Maybe  I need me a hat?

BTW, nice non-use of periods Matt.

You're welcome to mine, if you have a watermelon to hang it on.  I no longer follow the Brewers.

Thank you.  I had to look it up on Wikipedia to make sure I was punctuating it (or not, as it were) correctly, which means I'll probably have to change it again next week sometime.

Wow, Josh Hamilton was unreal tonight in the first round.  Glad my man JM got the win, but Hamilton deserved it.

ESPN yet again showed no love to Justin last night. NO ONE picked him or even talked about him when it came time to pick their winners. And when it was all done they all glossed over him as the champ by blowing it off by saying people will forget that he won soon, but will never forget that Hamilton put 28 out in the 1st round. What a bunch of ass clowns.

Hamilton put on an exhibition last night, just forgot to leave a little in the tank for the final round. Justin took advantage.

I just can't believe that they had 3 people mispronounce Justin's name 3 time in a row before they awarded him his trophy. One time he was called JASON, and then they mispronounced his last name 2 times and one of them came from that airhead that ESPN had on the field talking to all the guys.

Josh Hamilton really is a great story.  And last night he was amazing in the derby.  Now did Justin Morneau get overshadowed?  Yes, even if he did win the Home Run Derby.   But you've got to feel something for Josh Hamilton coming back like this, putting up amazing numbers after nearly losing it all due to his drug problems.  And to have the guy who pitched BP to him in American Legion ball on the mound last night was an even greater indication of how Hamilton has turned his life around and realized what was really important in his life.

Justin Morneau won the Home Run Derby.  Josh Hamilton won the fans hearts.

They played last night and beat the Cardinals to avoid a sweep in Atlanta.

Mmmmm.  Joba Chamberlain is bringing his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews.  Andrews....Andrews....that's the guy with the black cloak and giant sickle, right?
