    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    Castro triples off the wall in left. Ludwick was totally lost on that one. 5-1 Cubs.

    He's throwing almost all sinkers and cutters -- all between 84 & 88. How about something to change their bat speed? Where's Mes on this one?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Mike Leake is missing his spots today, big time.

    April hasn't been his strongest month in his career.

    I wish Homer Bailey was as good as Mike Leake.

    Gonna need to start putting up some more runs.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The Reds are in serious trouble.

    By this time in his other starts, the Brewers and Cardinals had both put up 6 runs against Maholm.
