From being Negative Nancy.
Like most of you (save, perhaps, those of who you have inside knowledge about the team), I had two thoughts when Buster Olney reported two weeks ago that the Brewers were the front-runners for Creedence Clearwater Sabathia (credit to T-Seben):
1. "Buster"? You're a grown man and people still call you "Buster"?
My apologies to you, Robert Stanbury "Buster" Olney III. You nailed that one.
Godspeed to you, Matt LaPorta. I hope you're a 20-time All Star for Cleveland. But I don't care about that right now. Right know, alls I know is that the reigning Cy Young winner is coming to Milwaukee. To pitch for the Brewers.
How about that for a shot across the bow of H.M.S. Cubby Bear? Eat shit and die, Ryan Theriot.
