Gainin' On Ya! All Up Around Your Neck

The Cubs are in first place, in case you haven't heard. The Brewers are in second, "but that's a temporary condition too":

To each his reach
And if I don't cop, it ain't mine to have
But I'll be reachin' for ya
'Cause I love ya, CC.
Right on.
Ain't it funky, Chicago?

(Or how about "J.J.? C.C.; C.C.? J.J.")

All kidding aside, the Brewers now have arguably the best one-two starting pitching punch in baseball with, in no particular order, Ben Sheets and C.C. Sabathia. (Who am I forgetting? Surely a pair in the AL?) Sheets' ERA and WHIP are a little better this season, but Sabathia pitches in the AL, leads baseball in strikeouts, and is the reigning Cy Young winner (he also got off to an unusually bad start).

It's gonna be a fun second-half!
