Mastroianni, Mauer and Willingham due up.
If I were Walt, I'd do everything I could to keep Willingham from getting on the Twins plane. I'm not though.
I have a feeling Chapman will be in to face Mauer.
Chapman in to pitch.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "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."
I'd even make try to make a deal for Josh before he hits here in the ninth.
Great start by Leake: 8IP, 5H, 2ER, 0BB, 5K
Chapman keeps Span and Morneau on the bench. Probably makes the most sense.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Only thing is, I'd get a righty, Arredondo, up in the pen. Just in case.
