08.20.2018: CC Sabathia chats about the 2008 Brewers

Aug 20, 2018, 11:00 AM

Host JR Radcliffe is joined by Brewers legend CC Sabathia (34:45) -- whose 3 1/2 months with the team may be the most memorable pitching performance in franchise history when he led the Brewers to the playoffs 10 years ago. Sabathia discusses that frenzied performance that snapped a 26-year playoff drought for the organization. 

Before that, JR is joined by Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (12:50) to try and put Sabathia's performance in context. Is it the best Brewers pitching performance ever, and would the team make that same trade again, knowing what it knows now? JR also attempts to find three reasons for optimism with the 2018 Brewers (5:35), now tied for a Wild Card spot after their downward trend continued last week.
