-In case you forget to look....
That's the sweet taste of first place.-Earlier last week, Rob Neyer gave his take on what's ailing CC Sabathia. I don't disagree about the K/BB ratio stuff, but I have to think that the league and division changes have had somewhat of an impact on that. I also want to caution about jumping to conclusions too soon - CC's ERA was as high as 3.95 in early August last season, and especially when we're this early, even 2-3 earned runs can have a somewhat large impact on ERA.
-River Avenue Blues speculates a lot, and I doubt there's any chance it will ever happen. But it's an entertaining thought. With no full-time DH and a roster of older position players, having backups who can hit really makes a difference, as we saw a few weeks ago.
-LoHud brings up an idea, but I was already on this almost two weeks ago.
