    I am trying to guess the shape of the strikezone. I think zebra. A dancing zebra.

    Heisey is a big part of the explanation.

    Re: 4.12.13 v Pirates

    It was my understanding that they wanted Chapman in the rotation to replace Leake. Further, the organization did absolutely nothing in the offseason to add rotation depth behind the five they planned for, figuring that Leake would be that depth.

    And then, scant weeks before Opening Day, they reverse course. So now we have Leake, a low-ceiling junkballer that has never been more than sporadically effective, throwing every fifth day while one of the best pitchers in baseball features only when the Reds are leading or tied, and then for one inning tops. And zero major league ready rotation depth.

    I really do not get it.

    You've shown real aptitude at working well with men on base.

    This is unwatchable, get this pitcher out of there.
    To be fair, there was 1 out and he got squeezed considerably that AB. 2 strikes called balls.

    Nice! Hanahan with a liner to left. 2 on no outs.

    Six k's through 3 innings...we are 3rd in MLB in k's. We aren't helping ourselves by not making contact.

    The season is young, but Leake's act is very old.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    This is where a guy with Frazier's versatility is nice to have...if Hanahan gets hot, he can play 3rd and Frazier can cover left field.

    Zach out on a grounder to third. He just missed a double down the line the previous hack.

    Devin really needs to get going with the bat. With Hanny struggling, now is his chance to grab the reins.
