ESPN's Baseball Tonight, a show more about marketing ESPN than baseball, led off their 11 PM Central show with a montage homage to C.C. Sabathia. You just know that ESPN was all ready to go with the storyline of C.C. launching the Brewers into first place. They had the video. They set the mood. They started the show.

And the Cubs messed up the storyline.

Sorry ESPN, you, like the Brewers, lose.

Not only did the Cubs win, but they beat the guy that Milwaukee was counting on to be their Rick Sutcliffe. They also taxed the Brewer pen something serious. The Brewers better hope for a huge lead tomorrow because if the game is close late, Salomon Torres will be sitting and Eric Gagne will be entrusted to saving a win for Ben Sheets.

I'll bet Carlos Zambrano will have something to say about that.
