Damn, I was hoping for a little more embarrassment and pure stank out of leake. I'm not sure if it was quite enough to get leake sent out. Now, we may get stuck with another Leake start. I was hoping for 9 runs for the Nats and Leake and Dusty to be booed out of the stadium in the 3rd.
He only missed his target by 7 feet there.
Why are the Reds paying a right handed hitter like Ludwick 2 million when they could have had a left handed hitter like Ankiel for 1.2 million?
Not into the game mentally, lackluster play at times, poor hitting in general,
#4 & 5 starters struggling.........yeah it's only 30 games, but except for a couple of players, little or no improvement has been seen.
this is ugly
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Why did Dusty take Leake out?
just a guess. I have no idea.
Votto starts the rally.
