please let this line up idea stick. Janish at SS today would be a good thing because Leake is showing good GB rates so far this year. Lets make it 3 in a row.

The Reds are getting cocky with their two-game winning streak. They are only going to use eight players against the 'Stros. =)

I wonder what Votto thinks with 2 men on base when he comes to the plate lol

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:11 PM
Votto grounds back to the pitcher..advances the runners. 2nd and 3rd, 1 out.

Bourn strikes out.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:17 PM
That's how you score a run in the National League.

Leadoff guy gets a single. Steals 2nd base.

Next guy gets a walk to put more pressure on the pitcher, and to show more pitches to the guys waiting to bat.

Next guy moves both of them up a base (+2 bases).

Next guy moves both of them up a base (+2 bases) and scores a run.

Next guy doesn't score the guy at third, but 5 guys reached base resulting in 1 run and 20 pitches were thrown.

We should now get to the top of the order again to lead off the 3rd if just one of the next 3 guys gets on base, which one of them should.

Do this 3 more times and the top of the order gets to bat for the 5th time in the 9th inning.

Kingspoint

And, Hernandez drew a very valuable walk in the 2nd, so that Leake isn't leading off the 3rd inning now.

Yep. George HW was also at the game last night.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:32 PM
The bottom 4 of our lineup eaked out 20 pitches by Paulino in the 2nd.

Ready for the top of the order to do some damage again.

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:34 PM
1-0 Reds after 2 full innings. Leake looks good thus far.

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:34 PM
Whaoo..what a pitch to Pence..1-0 after 2.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:34 PM
A comfortable 27 pitches by Leake through 2 innings.

All looking good through 2 innings.

Now let's give Leake some cushion.

Knightro28
04-28-2010, 08:35 PM
Just flipped on the game. The results are coming out in favor of Leake, but he seems to be missing a lot early in the count.

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:36 PM
Stubbs flies out to left. 1 out.

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:36 PM
Stubbs flies out after they almost let it fall between them.

Votto has some sweet dance moves

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:40 PM
Rolen has a .419 OPS w/ Runners on base this season. That's OPS, not OBP.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
Yeah, Baby!

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
Votto triples down the right field line and Pence bobbles it. BP motors around to score. 2-0 Reds

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
Poor ball kid lol..that looked foul.

04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
Rolen with a missle to second.

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
Rolen hits a ROCKET right at Matsui. 2 down.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:41 PM
A triple by Votto!

Now, for Rolen to get that runner on third in w/ less than 2 outs.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:42 PM
Rolen with a missle to second.

That sucked.

redsfan_12

Bruce just missed that..2-0 after 2 1/2

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:42 PM
Bruce flies out to right, but the Reds put another brick in the wall.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:42 PM
3 1st-Pitch balls-in-play that inning....all resulting in outs.

Paulino gets out of the inning w/ only 13 pitches, but he gives up a run. Nice job by the Top of the order again.

2-0 Good Guys.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:44 PM
Nix, Cabrera and Hernandez need to do their job again and get Leake up to bat next inning so Stubbs can lead off the 5th.

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:45 PM
Loooooonnngggg fly ball to Nix by Matsui.

BigPoppa

I hope Leake can make adjustments once hitters start to figure him out.

Cabrera with an infield single.

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:50 PM
Infield hit OCab !!

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:50 PM
41 pitches for Leake first time through the lineup with 9 outs.

Paulino had 40 pitches first time through the lineup but with only 6 outs.

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:50 PM
Now..no Dp and Leake can lead off..

BigPoppa
04-28-2010, 08:51 PM
Nix pops up to shallow left. 1 out, 1 on

redsfan_12

Nix with a lazy fly ball to left. 1 away

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:51 PM
Cabrera with an infield single.

Cool. Now, avoid the double-play and move him over if you're going to make an out.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:52 PM
Another first pitch out.

Guess we're going to be aggressive today, but every first-pitch contact has been an out. Our hits have come on subsequent pitches.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:52 PM
OCab=2SB,0CS

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:52 PM

BigPoppa

Hernandez doubles to left. Cabrera could only get to third waiting to see if it was caught....

redsfan_12
04-28-2010, 08:53 PM

Hit and run there.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 08:53 PM
Leake with a chance to help himself. He does have the team's best average in this lineup.

The minimum batters faced (12) through 4 innings for Leake.

Now at 56 pitches.

BigPoppa

BigPoppa

Now at 56 pitches.

Very tidy and workmanlike so far.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:15 PM
Tomorrow (assuming we win today) we can get back to .500.

Very important tomorrow.

Also, this will be back-to-back good starts by our starters (a "decent" one by Harang, and so far, an "excellent" one by Leake).

Can we possibly get 3 good starts by our starters during one rotation? That would be huge for us to get some momentum going into May.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:16 PM
Another 1st-pitch out by the REDS (Cabrera).

Don't relax here, Cincy. Keep the pressure on Houston. Get to their bullpen this inning, if possible, in order to help tomorrow's game.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:18 PM
Wow! Another 1st-Pitch out by Cincy (Hernandez).

Only 7 pitches by Paulino that inning.

That didn't give Leake any kind of a rest.

They have to put the pressure on Houston every inning.

And, these were the Veterans that were all up this inning for Cincy.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:19 PM
This is where Houston might get to Leake. He didn't even get a chance to get his glove off before he has to go right back out there.

Do you leave Leake in here? 88 pitches, up to bat.

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:33 PM
87 pitches for Leake

6 innings the most to be expected now.

Still a very good outing if he can get through the 6th.

A. Very important
B. Helps a little
C. Makes no difference

Kingspoint
04-28-2010, 09:38 PM
After the team just watched what happened to Leake after they only took 7 pitches in the 5th inning, Stubbs and Phillips only look at a combined 3 pitches while making 2 outs. (after Leake tried to leg out a Double)

What a couple of dummies!!!

This is one DUMB team, because they have one DUMB manager.

You can think the STUPIDITY of the REDS for Leake's performance in the 5th and 6th innings.

And, that, as Paul Daugherty put it, is a direct reflection of the STUPIDITY of DuHsty Baker.

Great Job, Leake!!!

Now, if the REDS can take some time here with their at-bats, Dusty can bring Leake back out for another couple of batters, and possibly a couple of outs.

So, the Reds announcers like to continually point out that Mike Leake had never pitched a professional inning before this year. What does the Arizona Fall League count as?

Interesting play there. Straight off of the plate, Hernandez scampered out to pick it up while it was still fair (according to the home plate umpire) and tagged an arguing Quintero.

Kingspoint

Leake just turned in the 2nd best performance by a starting pitcher for the REDS this season (tied for second w/ Harang's best performance this year). Leake had a Game Score of 64 today. Harang's had one at 64. Arroyo's had one at 73, and Leake has also had a 60 (4th best by a starter this year).

So far, Mike Leake has been the ACE of the staff.

Except Parris had no upside.

Leake looks like he could get 150 Major League Wins.

He reminds me of Jack Morris. He just knows how to win.

He satisfies one of the following conditions:

1. He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning
2. He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, at bat or on deck
3. He pitches for at least three innings


1) he will only pitch 2/3 of an inning
2) ondeck was run 5 not 6
3) well is #1
