    Re: Leake

    I'm very disappointed for Travis Wood and would have taken him north if it were my decision. This has to be a difficult situation for him. He pitched well in spring and has already been a MiLB Pitcher of the Year and doesn't make the cut.

    He's still only got 48 innings in AAA. I think he'll do fine with pitching every 5th day in Lousville.

    He isn't very efficient, and walks a lot of people. Leake goes fast doesn't waste any time, and induces lots of ground balls with his late movement in the zone. Much better pitcher for GABP in that regard.

    If anything, I'm surprised they gave up on Maloney that fast, he looked pretty good in his last stint in the bigs last year. He's a fly-ball pitcher though, which again doesn't bode well for GABP.

    I'm happy for Leake, I think he deserved it.
    This is probably 95-99% of what he's ever going to be, so might as well use him now.

    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

    Wood will be in the rotation some day.

    I still scratch my head in disbelief at how the Reds went from minimal starting pitching to an overabundance. Remarkable.

    Arroyo, Harang, Cueto, Bailey, Owings, Lehr, Volquez, Maloney, Wood, Leake......flat out amazing. Harang will definitely be gone after this season, unless he has an amazing year, which I don't see happening.

    I see Harang resigning for cheaper and Arroyo being gone.

    I really hope they re-sign Arroyo. I love to watch him pitch (and hate to watch Harang). Last year finally convinced me of Arroyo's value.

    Exactly...

    and I totally believe, given the chance, that Lehr would be a winning pitcher in this league...but who would want him over Leake, Wood, Chapman, Maloney even maybe...wow.

    They need to be thinking about doing some trading and stocking up again at the A and AA level with some of the guys they have right now.
