    I feel for you IH. It's very difficult to be optimistic and positive-minded on this board sometimes. I think Leake has been the best starter for the Reds this season (Cueto's short time back has been very good though). I think people are reacting more to the term "ace" than to Leake's actual performances. He's been very good (especially considering his age & experience) but as of right now...the Reds don't have what many would consider a bonafide "ace".

    But don't get your head down. Leake's my boy too! :O)

    Rolen lines out to left and Bruce is doubled off 2nd to end the inning.

    I get what your saying

    Right now it is not the pitching it is the complete crap of an offense the Reds have. They sit back and expect the other team to make a mistake, and when it does not happen they lose.

    Bruce doubles off the wall. And then is doubled off 2nd base. How horrible is this team becoming.

    The Reds sure look like amateurs today going up against the Yankees AAA team.

    Bruce either thought there were 2 outs or he never saw where it was going. They simply can't make these kinds of mistakes against the Yankees.

    Where's the swagger this team had early on??

    Not everyone. Many were just mocking him. And whether people mean something different or not...the impression it leaves is BEYOND depressing. Sometimes it looks like people are just waiting for bad things to happen so they can revel in their misery.

    When you see the Yankees and compare them to the Reds, you see how much further the Reds need to go to be a true contender for a world championship.

    So did Bruce just do what Volquez did?

    I'm not watching the game.

    Thank God, I'm not at the game. The last two games I've been to Arrendondo has balked in a run and thrown a wild pitch to give up a run. For the life of me, I can't figure out why he's still pitching in the 7th-8th-9th.

    The Reds have however managed to smash out 2 hits through the front 5. Baby steps.
