The three year anniversary of CC Sabathia being traded to the Milwaukee Brewers took place just over a week ago. For desperate Milwaukee Brewer fans like me, we cherish this date because of the rise from mediocrity that it provided in 2008.
This certainly was one of the best trades in Milwaukee Brewers history despite only having Sabathia for a mere three months. Will this years acquisitions of Shaun Marcum, Zack Greinke, Nyjer Morgan or Francisco Rodriguez have a lasting impact similar to Sabathia? Not likely.
But they could still end up being regarded as good trades for Milwaukee. What are the best trades the Brewers have made over the years? Let’s take a deeper look.
