    Leake is pretty much average.
    As a 5th starter, you'll take that.

    Votto grounds into a 4-6-3 DP. 2-0 Nationals after 3.

    I'll drop it, but I don't get the Leake bashing. For what he's supposed to do, he's WELL above average at it. I don't see many #5 starters better.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    The Reds have had a few guys who have taken a little longer than expected to hit their potential. Maybe we should use a little patience.

    Shed a tear...
    Patience is not in abundance in one of the few years in which a small-market team such as ours has a legit chance to win a world series.

    Leake has had 2 bad innings out of 3 today. He has never shown himself to be an above-average MLB SP. I'm not only allowed to think the guy's no good, but I am supported by statistics and empirical evidence.

    Tough inning to get nothing. We'll get a few before the end of it.

    On second look, I'm not sure Tracy ever got back.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    After getting 15 yesterday, I'm already mentally prepared to score 2 or less today.

    This makes how much of a difference? Really? Announcers say stuff like that, but somehow we are supposed to believe that Ryan Hanigan has a magical ability to use a Jedi mind trick on the ump?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Hatcher was right. To be fair, he had the better angle.

    Awful call and it costs us at least one run.

    I was just making an observation of something that Mes could (and will) make improvements on. I want the kid to play more; he offers much more offensive potential than Hanny and has a cannon for an arm.
