Yes, C.C. Sabathia is now a Yankee. And while you Brewer fans laid in bed and wept, Yovani Gallardo knew that all was not lost.
He knew that Braun, Cameron, and Hart would return. By themselves they drove in close to 300 runs last season.
He also knew that Prince Fielder with his 34 homers from last year would report to spring training in the best shape of his career.
And, unlike the rest of us, Gallardo knew that with a one- or two-run lead in the ninth, his Brewers can always count on the all-time saves leader, Trevor Hoffman, to slam the door shut on the opposing team.
So listen to the future of your pitching staff, Brewer fans. There is life after Sabathia.
And come this October while the Yankees are spending billions of dollars trying to figure out just how to bring Ruth and Mantle back from the dead so they can once again win the East, your Brewers will actually be in the playoffs.
