The Center or Central cannot hold

The Central divisions in both leagues saw a change in their leaders tonight.

Cleveland reclaimed the lead in the AL Central with a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay while Detroit lost in New York 6-1. The Indians have now been in first for 71 days. The Tigers have been in first for 56 days. (There have been some days when they were tied.)

In the NL, the Cubs edged St. Louis 2-1 and moved into first when Milwaukee continued its slide with an 8-3 loss to the Reds. The Brewers have spent 112 days in first place. This is just the third day the Cubs are in first and the first day they have been in first all alone.

Detroit and Milwaukee need to shore up their pitching before things fall apart.

Milwaukee and Detroit better straighten out their pitching before things fall apart.

Oops. My first comment was invisible (at least to me) until I posted the second.

So which is it Milwaukee or Detroit? Which city do you like more?

I think I like Detroit as a city better but I've never visited. The only place in Michigan I've ever been is Mackinac Island. I love Wisconsin but I've never warmed to any of their pro sports teams although I like lakefront cities like Milwaukee in general. My comment was a lame joke about Yeats...

'Things fall apart; the center cannot hold' the full line you were quoting in the title.
