    Leake has great entrance taste. I consider (as well as the Grammys) .fun the best new thing I've heard in awhile. But back to baseball, a sweep puts us back where we were before the Pittsburgh debacle.

    Looks like A-Choo is tradeable, fine without him, except for that Robinson Hi-C mix up.

    And then there's Frazier. Cracks me up everytime I hear a MLB player walking up to Sinatra. Classic.

    Pretty sure they were only in the second.

    The redheaded dude calling the game on ESPN2 with Larkin and Boone is freaking me out. He looks like the dummy from The Twilight Zone.

    "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."

    There are but if he's throwing low 90's with significant sink as regularly as gameday shows, we're not going to have to worry about him this year.

    Nice play by Howard. Dicey right by the railing.

    Yeah, he'll get beat around sometimes...but he'll also do THIS sometimes. Typical young starting pitcher....inconsistent.
    Don't hex him. I can't count the times Leake has had the wheels come off in the middle innings.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    No. Toyota donates it to a local fire or police department after a year or two.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Hitting at a .429 clip doesn't hurt either (OPSing at 1.143).

    Disagree. lots of first pitch swinging, such as the Mes double and a lot of first pitch foul balls or strikes, such as Phillips first swing grounder foul.

    I get frustrated by folks who complain when there is a first pitch out but not a first pitch swing. It is not like any batter is swinging in order to miss the ball.

    Boone has language or math problems... "Reds have made the playoffs four of the last three years."

    So that update didn't sound too good about Cueto. Hopefully Bailey and Leake can keep pitching like this for another couple weeks
