Then the Reds need to make sure that Bailey and Leake AREN'T back to back in the rotation. You simply can't sit him three or four days in a row (off days) all year long.
This whole "you catch your guys" thing is so stupid it hurts. Let both guys catch everyone. Every week they alternate who they catch. It isn't difficult. Through the rotation once it goes H-M-H-M-H, the next time through, it goes M-H-M-H-M and so on. If you MUST stick to the 60/40 split, then make that happen. With 162 games, it is actually impossible to be 60/40, but you can be awfully close. Mix it up.
