    Worst case scenario.....good to know the staff is officially six deep. It's a long, long season.
    Seven deep, if you count Chapman.

    I'm pretty sure mlb will have to lower the mound again because of him. Maybe do away with it altogether.

    Shouldn't the Reds lock him up with a like 20 year $100,000,000 contract?

    I mean what possibly could go wrong?

    If Leake is moved to the BP, which reliever gets dropped?

    Hoover to AAA?

    No. Other pitchers will still use the mound. Every stadium will have a "Cingrani pit." They'll dig a hole one foot deep about 10 feet behind the mound and Cingrani will pitch from there. It will be covered over on days when he's not pitching and when the opposition is in the field to avoid it interefering with ground balls.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I fully expect him to get 110% of the vote.

    On a related note, some kids in school Friday, directed by a teacher, made a banner that said "We pledge to give 110% on the Westest" (the all-powerful year-end standardized test.) I hope that didn't include the math portion.

    Cingrani for President.
    "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."

    Manny Parra needs to be the one to go from the 'pen and Leake can be stashed in AAA.

    I'm just not sure where you get this idea, here's Leake's splits, and the more times through the order the worse he is:
    Code:
    Split	        G	ERA	OPS	tOPS+
    Innings 1-3	83	3.68	0.745	93
    Innings 4-6	81	4.49	0.786	103
    Innings 7-9	38	5.98	0.858	119

    I'm willing to start a Cingrani fan club -- please send all your money to the same Bahama's bank account that I used for the Cozart Fan Club and the Ryan Ludwick Fan Club!

    As if he knows that this is his shot now, and that he has no intention of letting it slip away. Kudos to Buckley and the scouting department.
    Seriously. Lost in the shuffle of video game K rates and 96MPH fastballs is the fact that this guy is furiously competitive. I love it.
