Ok, It's Starting to Get a Bit More Serious

Jayson's Stark's latest Rumblings & Grumblings had this little nugget tucked into it:
Something brewing: Here at World Rumblings Headquarters, we're hearing the same noises that our buddy Buster Olney has been hearing -- that the Brewers loom as one of the most serious potential bidders on Sabathia, even if he's just a rent-a-starter. The Brewers have a deep system. And principal owner Mark Attanasio has made it clear to his baseball operation that it's time to go for it. So if Sabathia winds up somewhere other than Milwaukee, said one baseball man who has spoken with GM Doug Melvin, "it won't be because they're afraid to give up their prospects."
I'm a little surprised that they are looking at acquiring a front line starter like Sabathia. Next year I would have definitely seen them doing something big like this but I kinda thought that they would look to make just a small deal or two this year or stand pat all together. I wonder who Melvin is willing to give up for him. Melvin seems like a if you put the right deal together, no one is untouchable kinda guy so I guess it could be anyone.

We'll have to wait and see if anything does come of this but it looks as though the Crew are serious players in this thing.
