Sabathia Rumors Overshadow Brewers Victory

After the heartbreak of Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks, the Brewers wasted no time figuring out how to regroup, rolling over the Pirates 9-1. The Brewers collected 14 hits, including 4 from J.J. Hardy and 3 from Bill Hall, with both of them hitting a two run shot. Always good to see the nice outing from Bill Hall. It was also nice to see someone give help to J.J. Hardy, who has been carrying the team as of late.

On the hill, Sheets didn't have his best stuff today, giving up 8 hits in 5 2/3 innings. However, he made the key pitches when he needed to, and only gave up 1 run. Coming in relief for Sheeter was Carlos Villanueva, who pitched a good 3 1/3 innings, giving up just one hit, and recording the long save.

The real story today however was the increasing speculation that C.C. Sabathia will soon become a Milwaukee Brewer. The names kept changing throughout the day, but the latest offer, according to Haudricourt, appears to be Matt LaPorta, Taylor Green, and Lorenzo Cain. Sabathia's next start is scheduled for Tuesday, and hopefully that comes in a Brewers uniform. I'd like to see them make a move soon though, before Cleveland's price becomes too high.

Box Score.

TBC's Player of the Game: Nice game from Hardy, but we feel Bill Hall was more of the difference maker.

Well your going to get your wish, LaPorta plus others for CC. I guess Doug is a gambling man as well. From what is sounds CC has made his last start as an Indian and will make his next start Monday as a Brewer. Hopefully this puts us over the top. There also is some buzz about the Crew getting Greg Maddux. Sounds like Gwynn Jr might be involved, anyone else read anything about this?
