CC - just 3 days rest for 4th straight time

CC will be starting tonight on just three days' rest for the fourth straight time even though he's already pitched 253 innings this season

Thomas Boswell writes in the Washington Post:

Like most tales as compelling as this, there's a back story. Sabathia is not just competitive but proud. That pride was mocked last October when, after a Cy Young season, he got nervous and allowed 15 earned runs and 13 walks in 15 1/3 ugly postseason innings.

"I think you'll see a more calmer version of me," Sabathia said. "Last year I went into the playoffs thinking I had to throw no-hitters. That's why you saw me pressing a lot."

Sabathia claims he's not purging the past. He just loves the Brewers like family now. Milwaukee is nuts over the Crew in a way Cleveland wasn't over the Indians. So he wants to bring everybody in Wisconsin a beer and a world title.

I don't live in Cleveland but I think Indians fans were just as nuts over the Indians last year as the Brewer fans have been this year.  Am I wrong?

The bigger question is are the Brewers putting Sabathia's career in jeopardy?
