    Re: Leake: Always giving up early runs

    Give Leake credit, he sure came out to play today. Although I can imagine when your team scores that early and that often pitching becomes much easier knowing you can't blow the lead with one bad pitch.
    I've said all winter they talk about this team winning the division and my comment is, they won't win it because, at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up. - Marty Brennaman

    It's just too frustrating to watch the hapless Leake let down the team and the fans time and time again. Somebody let me know when the Reds trade him or send him to the minors. Sorry, but I just cannot tolerate or support this guy. However, thank God we had Chapman riding the bench, just in case we needed him.
    Its a shame, you missed one hell of a game from him yesterday.

    Leake pitched a great game yesterday. The scary thing is that he could be back to giving up early runs his next start. I really hope this doesn't happen and he finds some consistency. Everyone is wondering if Cingrani will stick if he does well and leake does poorly. I'm hoping for a situation where leake does well and cingrani does better. It'd be a win-win for the reds.

    Leake was lights out yesterday. No doubt about that one.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Another fine outing by Leake.

    He's pitching as well, if not better, than anyone else on the staff.

    3-1 with a 1.87 ERA in May.

    'Little boy' indeed.

    A bump for Reds' ace Mike Leake.

    Re: Leake: Always giving up early runs

    I had my doubts about Leake at the beginning of the season, but I have changed my mind. He has turned into one of the best #5 starters going, with a 7-3 record ( which should be 8-2) and a 2.61 ERA. The real story has been the failure of the bullpen to hold a lead going into the 8th and 9th inning. Hoover and Simon have not been up to the task.

    And that was never their role. Marshall and Broxton (thank God the Reds had the foresight and made Chapman the closer).... anyways Marshall and Broxton have not delivered. Hoover and Simon have pitched like average relievers and should be treated as such. Just because a bunch of overanalyzed numbers says they are in situations, when it comes down to key at bats or innings... you need, over the long haul, elite mental and physically strong pitchers. It is what separates video game or board game or fantasy players to real players....
