    Phantom DL trip for Leake?

    I agree with the notion that 11 pitchers is a bad idea. The day off yesterday helped for sure, but if someone gets knocked out in the 1st or 2nd inning...LeCure is going to have to go the distance. Remember that Zito had to come in for relief during the SF series for them. And San Fran only had 11 pitchers as well.

    Why go with 11 pitchers now, after the pitching staff was beaten up in SF?

    If anything, I'd expect more pitchers, not fewer pitchers.

    And Lecure is still on the staff, have to wonder how long he will stay up.

    September 1 is just a few days away, still I expect a pitcher to joing the club imminently.
    Nix and Phillips with limited availability means a position payer is needed. Cueto on the mound and a day off yesterday means the staff is probably in better shape than the position guys right now. If they need to go to the pen early, Lecure will get the call and be optioned after the game with a fresh arm to replace him. If Phillips or Nix improve Valaika or Francisco will go down and an arm added. It makes sense to me.

    I doubt that the Reds will still have 11 pitchers by Sunday.

    No, at least I don't...He was instrumental in getting us hopefully to the playoffs, but I do not want to see him in the playoffs. Either way, I still have the upmost respect for Leake and he has done an unreal job so far this season.

    Indeed. Juan Francisco's dog ate a wheel of cheese out of Juan's fridge.

    Francisco wasn't even mad, just amazed.

    If his dog can get into the fridge on his own, his vet bills are going to be a much bigger deal than buying more cheese.
