Hot stove baseball: Cleveland and MilwaukeeSince the calendar flipped from June to July, Major League Baseball's trade deadline has taken center stage. Maybe the All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium is a slightly larger story.
Anyway, it appears the Milwaukee Brewers have made the first significant trade of the season. Though not official, it appears the Brewers have successfully traded for Cleveland Indians' starting pitcher, C.C. Sabathia. This move can have a big impact on the National League Central Division and wild card races.

Complete details may be announced on Monday. Seeing the Chicago Cubs have not been able to shake the St. Louis Cardinals, the division is still up for grabs. On top of that, Milwaukee has been on fire, expect for that 6-run ninth inning the other night.
