Brewers Get Sabathia!

According to Ken Rosenthal:

The Brewers have won the C.C. Sabathia sweepstakes.

The Indians have agreed to trade the ace Sabathia and two lower-level
minor leaguers for a package that includes top prospect Matt LaPorta
and other minor leaguers, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Sabathia could make his debut as early as Tuesday for the Brewers against the Rockies.

LaPorta,
a right-handed slugger who is below-average defensively, would be a
better fit for the American League. He was the Brewers' first-round
pick in 2007, and played first base at the University of Florida, but
the Brewers converted him to left field — a position occupied by Ryan
Braun, who is signed through 2015.
