CC Earns His Keep

It is very likely that without CC Sabathia's services the Brewers would be heading to the All-Star break in a complete tailspin. Without Sabathia, they may have lost a series to the rockies 3-1, and they almost certainly would have been swept by the Reds at home. It's hard to imagine the Crew winning yesterday's game with Jeff Suppan on the mound.

Instead, the Brewers still find themselves just a half game out of the wild card in the Wild Card Division:

1. St. Louis -
2. Milwaukee .5
3. New York 1.5
4. Florida 2.5
5. Los Angeles 6.0

Without Sabathia it is very likely that the Mets would have shot past the Brewers as well.

Lastly, after watching him pitch, I don't know how left-handed batters ever get a hit off of him. That curveball/slider thing he throws is unbelieveable.
