    Two great acquistions. Time will tell, but these two could meet in the NLCS.

    Too early to tell.
    Manny may be the difference in getting LA over the top in the NL West. But, if the Brewers to make the playoffs, Sabathia, as with most very good pitchers, are more important in playiff series. I pitcher can't get you to the playoffs, see Steve Carlton, but 1 dominant pitcher is the difference once you get there.

    At some point, Manny will revert to being Manny and the Dodgers will tire of his act the way the Red Sox did.

    At some point, C.C. will get into an eating match with Prince Fielder and the Brewers will tire of their skyrocketing food bill.

    Advantage C.C.

    Neither of the above.

    Angels are scoring 1.2 more runs per game since the Teixeira trade.

    Sabbathia is having run much like Doyle Alexander, Rick Sutcliffe and Randy Johnson.

    If he keeps it up these next six weeks, he's the NL Cy Young.

    Sabbathia? Is that Sabathia's cousin who won't pitch on Saturdays?

    Lifting the Angels from clearly in the playoffs to ... clearly in the playoffs.

    Normally I'd say an everyday player over a pitcher who only starts every fifth day. But Sabathia has been special. If the trade deadline was earlier like it was in 1984, I'd have put it as almost Sutcliffe-like.
