Cleveland trades CC Sabathia to Milwaukee for Michael Redd

Well, that's mostly true. Michael Redd wasn't part of the deal, but it'd be cool if he had been.

However, CC is gone, according to ESPN.

We got a ton of minor-league prospects, including Matt LaPorta. LaPorta has 20 home runs and 66 RBIs in just over 80 AA ball. We'll see how that transfers to the show.

Immediately after hearing of his trade to Cleveland, LaPorta reportedly turned down a huge contract, claimed he wanted to stay in Cleveland for a long long time, then left in a big limo with Boston Red Sox bumper stickers.
