    sounds like OCab could be back tom. Probably Leake into long man role and carlos fisher being sent down with OCab taking his spot

    Surprised they haven't come up with an "injury" to Leake to keep his innings down that way.

    Not really to mad about this, we knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Just glad we have all these other options or who knows what may have happened.

    Depth is a good thing. Redlegs seem to have quite a bit of it these days.

    Fine with me. Glad that he got a win the other day. Really think we messed him up by making him wait 8 days to start prior to his start before last. That messed up his rhythm. He would be a good long reliever.

    But I agree. The Reds starting pitching depth is unprecedented probably in their history. It's cool that if someone else comes up with an injury, Leake will then be available. But no reason to push him right now.

    Will this do anything to help him next year, though?

    I'm not so sure cutting his innings this year helps him out in the future, in terms of building endurance.

    I'm not saying burn through him like he's Mark Prior out there, but is this really in the best interest for him long term, or is this just a thought process for the rest of this season?

    Isn't depth great? And that's why this is a good move. At long relief, Leake should only work maybe once a week, which will help keep his arm fresh. And the rest of the time he'll be available to pinch hit/pinch run. Depth is indeed a good thing.

    From Fay on Twitter: #Reds told Leake he's in bullpen for now. "I'd rather go every 5th day. But whatever I can do to help the team."

    I've been saying for a while the best scenario is to put him in the pen as a long man to reduce his innings. I'm glad they're going through with it, because there's no need to push Mike his first year.

    Reds' rotation no longer Leakes? Cool.

    Good insurance if Homer (or other SP) isn't consistent. What's gonna happen when Harang thinks he's ready? Maybe another "long man" outta the pen? I guess it's a good dilemma to be in. I wonder how much veteran leadership and team chemistry will enter into their decision?

    If Harang doesn't start getting Minor Leaguers out, I don't care what he thinks. In my humble opinion, he should have already made his last start as a Red. The current rotation has five better pitchers (and Leake). Barring two injuries, I don't see how Harang makes it back into the mix.
    What if this is as good as it gets?
