Thus far Attanasio's tenure has been characterized by a desire among Brewers management to field a competitive team annually, through the development of homegrown stars such as Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun, the expansion of the team's payroll, and the completion of blockbuster trades for high-end talent when necessary. One such trade in mid-2008 brought the 2007 Cy Young Award winner, ace pitcher CC Sabathia, from Cleveland to Milwaukee as the Brewers attempted to break a 26-year playoff drought. Sabathia performed admirably down the stretch, carrying the team as he posted an 11-2 record in 17 starts and pitched several games on short rest, including a wild card-clinching victory in the final game of the season.
Today's trivia question: In how many of CC Sabathia's 11 wins for the Brewers in 2008 did he pitch a complete game, and how many of these complete games were shutout victories?
