    Reds catch a break

    It looks like Tim Lincecum is going to pitch Sunday. Therefore the Reds will play the Giants for 4 games next week and miss him in the rotation. They also got lucky by Strasburg not making his MLB debut until next week. It's time to put some wins on the board.

    You know I'm not so sure we did catch a break. Lincecum isn't pitching all that well in his last few starts, at least not like the Cy Young pitcher that he has been the last 2 years.

    Also, I wouldn't mind putting it to Strasburg in his debut and giving him a little reality check.

    I agree with your second statement. Im glad we dont face lincecum. However, I too wish we got to see Strasburg, I hope he is a bust.

    It's actually not a break.

    Lincecum has pitched like doggy-doo-doo his last three games.

    That's what I'm saying. I'd rather face Lincecum right now.

    Seems like Leake is getting quite a bit of attention. SI article, USA Today story, among others.

    Strasburg will be good, but I think he is the type of pitcher that the Reds would do pretty well against. Especially Votto, Bruce and Gomes.
