    Let's hope he can. Young's 2b was smoked.

    Geez, this looks like batting practice early vs. Leake. Gotta find a way to survive 3 more innings. Can't kill the bullpen vs. the Mets.

    Mets being very aggressive against Leake. Mets with six hits in first ten batters.

    He was doing fine when you first said it.

    Only the last two batters have hit the ball hard.

    Heh, this is the kind of stuff that makes the BABIP worshippers a bit hard to take seriously. Eight at-bats? With almost every one being a line drive? Yeah, six hits is more than possible.

    The ball to right was a soft liner with a funny spin. The hit up the middle by Wright was a broken bat blooper. The run-scoring single was a soft groundball up the middle.

    It' almost like the hitters know what pitch is coming.

    "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."

    Well, that didn't go well. 51 pitches and 4 runs.

    Whoever claimed yesterday that Leake was being shunned for playoff rotation, here's a reminder of why.
