    Leake laying an egg, and the bullpen still being mostly bad, ruined that whole game.

    Mesoraco was awesome though.

    On a good note I shot a 70 on 18 holes today. My best round in 8 years.

    Btw, sorry about that comment. As soon as I typed it I knew it sounded rude.

    He's always thrown about 88 on his FB. And he's got good movement on it...yes, STILL. But before this year, it would start in the zone and break OUT of the zone. Now it's starting in the zone and breaking to a still hittable area. It could be nothing more than a mechanical tweek we're talking about.

    Let me put it this way. We've got several guys in the pen who have a history of bad track records but who've done well in short stints. Logan, Hoover, Parra come to mind. LeCure is not in that group. He's had a history of excellence...this season is his first bad stretch at all. And let's put it in perspective too... 3.69 era, 40 k's, 18 bb. Those are average reliever numbers. Not POOR reliever numbers. He's gone from excellent to average for the first time. He's not as bad as many are remembering. Babip is something that I don't put much stock in but this season he's taken a BIG jump in that too. Since 2010, he's gone .308, .241, .297, .297 and this year .348. One of those things are not like the others.

    Considering how much leeway many of the other guys have gotten over the years, I think we can give LeCure a mulligan on this season....same as Bruce.

    Not sure who's gotten "leeway" and I'm not about to give "mulligans" to anyone after this miserable year. We don't have any choice with Bruce, what can we do except hope for the best? We sure can't trade him off this season.

    But even with the injuries and the offensive woes, this team could have still been halfway competitive if the veterans in the bullpen had stepped up and done their jobs. Changes have to be made. I really have seen enough of LeCure and Hoover to last a lifetime.

    And i can't believe I'm sitting here arguing about Sam friggin LeCure on yet another night when he failed to get his job done.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
