    Leake's future

    With the rotation as it is right now, Mr. Leake will face the Mets on Wed and then would face the Braves at GABP the monday. Both teams are doing pretty well. They moved the fences in at Citi field so it will be intersting to see. So lets say he continues to struggle...whom are some of the possible options and I will toss out Chapman because they are not going to move him into the rotation this soon, maybe late June/early July at the earliest. So what other options do we have?

    At AAA you have both Jeff Francis and Brett Tomko. Tomko overall numbers wise has pitched better, but Francis I believe is a lefty which might be a better choice. There is a kid in AA whom some compare to Cueto who has done okay I guess, didn't Cueto make the jump from AA? So who should take Leake's spot if there is no improvement?

    Move LeCure into the rotation. I think he deserves a shot if they aren't willing to let Chapman start.

    I'm guessing they would bring up Francis for a few weeks until Bray is ready. Then they can let Chapman get a start or two in the minors to stretch him out.

    I think the Reds are happy with what Sam is doing out in the pen, if you move him then who takes his slot out in the pen? As for Bray, I really don't see him back with the Reds till after the All Star break.
