CC Sabathia and 50 Year Old Women Have Something New in Common


Everyone around baseball has been buzzing about the big change for Carsten Charles Sabathia; no, I don’t mean the trade that sent Mr. Sabathia from the Indians to the Milwaukee Brewers, that’s old news. At his introductory news conference, Sabathia had the media staff of the Brewers inform reporters that he prefers to go by CC, not C.C.

Doug Melvin clearly didn’t do all his research about his corpulent new acquisition because, when informed of Sabathia’s period-less preference, his response was a highly surprised, “Oh really?”

New teammate J.J. Hardy also goes by his initials but as of right now has no plans to remove his periods.

This change though could be disastrous for Sabathia, and I hope the Brewers are taking full precautions. After all, the last time a pitcher was traded to the Brewers and requested a slight name change, it didn’t end well. Of course, I’m referring to the equally division-shaking trade in 2006 when the Brewers added super-skilled pitcher Jeremi Gonzalez. After becoming a Brewer, Gonzalez let it be known that the actual proper spelling of his name was Geremi; 2 years later, BAM! he was struck by lighting and killed in Venezuela.

That’s how quick it can happen.

I hope the Brewers take appropriate steps to protect their newest investment. I suggest they stick Eric Gagne right next to CC at all times, everyone who faces Gagne gets a hit so he must be a lighting rod of some sort. Plus, best case scenario, lightning actually strikes Gagne and the Brewers are saved from ever having to see Gagne pitch again.
