    Predictions on how Mike Leake will do?

    Let's see your predictions for Mike Leake's major league debut Sunday afternoon against the Cubs.

    My prediction:

    6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 3 K

    Picks up his first major league win.

    5 IP, 3H, 4R, 3BB, 5K.
    I think the kid has a bad first inning and then settles down from there.

    I think he is going to look REALLY good tomorrow. I don't know how it will start or end, but I believe there will be a stretch of AB's at some point that make you wonder why Homer Bailey has needed five years to be where he is at. Doc Rogers may be overstating his case, but he is right to suggest that Leake is ahead of Chapman in his development. I cannot wait for 1:10 to see the future of my beloved Reds.

    All I can say is that this team should score some runs vs Gorzelanny. This too is his first start of the season, and last year his ERA hovered just under 6. Though he does perform better in away games.

    Reds have always had problems scoring runs against him, if I remember correctly.
    "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."

    Should be different now. The line-up has a lot of guys who are much better against lefty pitching (especially mediocre ones). Phillips, Gomes, Rolen and Hernandez should all be viable bats along with Votto. Bruce may struggle a bit and the bench with Dickerson, Nix and maybe Francisco if he's still here will probably need to sit until we get into the pen. Stubbs is a wild card. He should have a good game as well. Cabrera seems to be about the same vs either side.

    The Reds should be able to score runs against this guy. I hope they get some early to help Leake relax. As to the original question. I'd expect a quality start with an exit after 6 IP.

    If Leake is ok, Sunday should be a winning day for the Reds. The match-ups are right for the team.

    I agree. But we "should" have scored some runs against Carlos Silva too. Just sayin'

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I agree. Don't think I would change any of that. Hoping to get down there today to see his debut.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
