    Heads Up Leake Pitching 6/19 in CWS. Apparently healthy.

    On ESPN2.

    He just pitched the first, two quick outs, two singles, and then ended the inning with no runs scoring.

    All I care about are his mechanics and how long he's out there. If he really does have tendinitis he may try to overthrow to compensate which wouldn't be good.

    He looked pretty decent in the first, smoother than the other night.

    No idea what the real story is with his health, but he's pitching, so cross fingers.

    Leake through two innings, 3 hits allowed, no runs, 4 Ks. Pitching in the third now. 1-0 ASU lead.

    1-2 pitch looked like strike at the knees, called a ball. Then next pitch a HR.

    1-1 game top of 3rd.

    ASU up 2-1 heading into the 5th. Leake much better, obviously, on this evening than he was on Tuesday night. 5 Ks, I think, for Leake, through four innings. He's allowed one walk.

    Huh. ASU manager is being interviewed, and acknowledges that Leake is not 100%. Acknowledges he is pitching through tendenitis.

    Ack. ACK.

    4 1P 5 hits, 1 earned run, 1 walk, 5 Ks so far.

    Announcers assure us that Pat Murphy, the ASU manager, "cares deeply" for Mike Leake. Uh huh.

    Leadoff double for Texas off Leake to start the 5th.

    When the Reds sign Leake, they need to put a big bag of ice on his arm and tell them they will see him in February.

    Sac moves runner to third. One down, runner on third.

    Announcers talking about how badly Leake wanted to pitch tonight to make up for the other night.

    Admirable.

    And, something that he should have been told, "no, we got your back". Instead, they run him out there on short rest with an arm that is apparently not 100%. I don't get amatuer coaches sometimes.

    2-2 game on a single.

    Leake looks tired to me, his pitches are elevated and hanging.

    Now the sideline reporter talking about how Leake is "short-arming" breaking balls to help with the pain.

    What part of any of this sounds good to anyone?

    Murphy goes to mound, conference, and they leave him out there.

    Weeeeeeeee.

    The issue is reportedly "tricep tendenitis".

    Double weeeeeeeee.

    Leake picks up his 6th K and then a ground out to SS ends the inning.

    2-2 game after five.

    Leake's a gamer. That's good, I suppose. Not smart, I would mention, but, hey. It's not my career.
