The Hefty Lefty may be gone sooner than we think! Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Indians and Brewers have been in recent talks about CC going to the land of cheese. Through some rumors I have read on the web that I can't confirm, apparently the proposed trade is CC and Masa Kobayashi to the Brewers for OF Matt Laporta, SS Alcides Escobar, 3B Taylor Green, and P Alexandre Periard. All four players are in Milwaukee's top 20 prospects according to Baseball America. The rumor stated that this traded could go down befor Sabathia's next scheduled start. Apparently Milwaukee radio, newspapers, and Internet forums are abuzzed with these speculations. Laporta seems to be the real deal as he was selected 7th in the 2007 draft and has hit 19 homeruns, while Escobar is batting .333 with 7 homeruns and 52 rbi in double-a at age 21. Who knows if it is legit, but it makes the season a bit more interesting as if this deal goes down Peralta's future at shortstop seems bleak. Any news I hear I will pass on over the next day.
