Don't let the millionaires ruin your day

Credit for the title goes to Plain Dealer sports columnist, and friend of this blog, Terry Pluto.

One piece of news that occurred today is something Stevie Wonder could have seen coming. The Cleveland Indians traded pitcher C. C. Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Indians' season went south almost from day one when catcher Victor Martinez pulled his groin going into second base.

The American League Central division has one team playing below their expectations every year. This year it's the Tribe's turn.

C.C. was going to become a free agent at the end of the season, so it was better to trade him to Milwaukee, who more than likely are renting him for three plus months, and get some prospects for him.

Of course I had to listen to this blog's antihero, WTAM/1100 afternoon host Mike Trivisonno. Sure enough when I got into the WIXYmobile, he was on sucking up to, I mean interviewing Indians general manager Mark Shapiro, telling him what a good job he was doing, despite the circumstances.

But the bright side of this baseball season is that I have more time to blog and more time to sleep. I truly am not going to let the millionaires ruin my day. And tomorrow you can still find me here at as I'm not being traded anywhere.
