    Yep. I like what the Yankees are doing with Hughes. As stated above they're skipping him now and will skip him again right before the all star break. I hope the Reds follow something similar to that.

    Re: John Erardi article: When will Reds shut down Mike Leake?

    I was thinking about this reading the paper this morning, but I wonder if it might not work to Leake and Volquez into a bit of a tandem as starters, flip-flopping their starts with the other doing a relief stint in between. Structurally I don't know what that looks like or if it's plausible, for that matter, but it's just a thought.

    An interesting thought at that. I like the idea much better than simply pulling the plug.

    From Mark Sheldon:

    *Mike Leake is being pushed back from his next turn in the rotation and will not pitch in the Cleveland series. Leake will start on June 29 vs. the Phillies. Aaron Harang, Sam LeCure and Bronson Arroyo will start the next three games vs. the Indians.

    I don't like that move. The Phillies are a much tougher matchup. I'd rather Leake start vs the Indians and then skip the Phillies.

    Can't do it in the Phillies series unless you short the rest of the pitching staff on rest. The day off tomorrow makes it possible. Has to be Cleveland.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    My bad. I was thinking the Reds had a day off after the Philly series. I forgot they start a four game series in Chicago after the Phillies leave town.

    From John Fay:

    –Mike Leake will be skipped for Cleveland series. Leake is on pace to pitch 200 innings this season. The Reds don’t want him to pitch nearly that many. “We have a round number,” Walt Jocketty said. “Probably 170, but it’s not etched in stone.”

    That sounds like a good plan to me. Anything to help Mike get through the whole season without wearing him out.

    If this has anything to do with the Harang/LeCure swap, meaning I have to watch Harang again tomorrow when I go (got stuck with him at the last game I went to), then I'm TICKED.

    I think tomorrow night was always supposed to be Aaron's turn in the rotation just looking at the days between starts. I think TPTB said they were going to try and give some of the younger guys a day or two between starts when they can during the season and with the off day tomorrow, they can give LeCure an extra rest day along with the two extra days they're giving Mike Leake. It's not a bad idea for those guys but I understand being bummed about the slight change in the rotation.
