    The kid's a competitor. I'd love to see him when he's feeling good. No question that what he's doing tonight is not good for his arm.

    I've watched the whole game and while I haven't charted the pitches it looks like the strategy has been to throw a lot more fastballs and try to get guys with movement and location. His curveball hasn't been very sharp at all, mostly soft and looping. If he signs, he should certainly be shut down.

    How about if ASU scores a bunch this inning so they can pull Leake (not that I wouldn't have pulled him already).

    Leake's back in for the 6th. The madness, it continues.

    Leadoff single, absolutely smoked, to 3b.

    Sac moves runner up.

    No one up in ASU bullpen.

    7th K leaves runner at second.

    It's not like the Reds need this guy to be on the roster in a year or two anyway, SP is one of their deepest positions.

    Leake deserves to play if he wants, just shut him down the rest of the year or at least most of it. A competitor like this is what this organization is all about, Walt sure knew what he was doing.

    davereds, it isn't about him pitching for the Reds in a year or two, it's about him still having a career.

    This is not a risk I would want anyone to take.

    i understand but it's his choice, he's not signed. nobody knows the extent of the injury. it doesn't sound like tendinitis is a high risk for further serious injury, although there obviously is some. im sure many doctors and his family when over all the possibilities. it would be different if he had a tear of some sort.

    It's NOT his choice, it is his manager's choice. That guy should have shut him down.

    Do some research on the subject.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Leake's final line:

    6 IP, 8 hits, 2 runs, both earned, 1 walk, 7 Ks 85 pitches (57 for strikes).

    Game is still 2-2 in the 8th.

    Tendinitis doesn't bother me too much. But anytime a pitcher isn't 100% there's always a risk that it could potentially result in a more serious injury if he keeps pitching. THAT'S my concern.
