There's been a lot of talk about picking up Maddux, and while i think everyone agrees that would be incredible, having him Smoltz and Glavine back in the rotation, i don't see it as a viable option (especially not in the long term). Other possible additions mentioned are Harden (injury prone), Sheets (injury prone and not gonna leave Mil most likely), Blanton and there are others. But I cam across an article today mentioning that C.C. Sabathia could be on the trade market at some point this year. After his abysmal April he is back into his normal form. He is a young power pitcher who eats up innings, thats absolutely what we need, especially if we can sign him long term. Also, It would give us three lefty starters, which present matchup problems galore. The only problem is we would have to resign him after the season, and no one wants to have a scenario like we have with Tex, where we give up a couple of our best prospects for a guy to play for us for a 1 1/2. I just wanted to see what everyone thought about this, is it a viable option as far as helping the braves now and in the future, do you think it will happen, and what would we have to give up to get him.
