    Anemic. Get a hitter, Walt. This is brutal. And to prove the point, Leake hitting

    Leake strikes out. Hit one foul pretty hard.

    Ugh. Oh well, when your bench is that horrible...

    Brutal and anemic but we have 4 runs.

    I'm not sure what Leake hitting there proves?2 outs, no one on with a 4 run lead you don't really want to send your best option up.

    In my opinion it proves there were no good options.

    I'm sure the Reds will add a hitter tomorrow and send down Redmond. They only brought up Redmond because of Cueto's blister situation.

    Tonight they have a very short bench so Dusty used Leake.

    I don't think I need to tell you what a good hitter Leake is.I just don't get how it proves anything that he hit in that situation.Now if Dusty thought for even a second that he should save Leake in case he's needed to PH in the 9th then yeah, that could tell you something.

    Sure. Short bench and he looked down there and saw the others. I imagine Jay will pinch hit if needed. I hope he isn't needed.

    Yeah all Dusty said on the pregame show was how used-up his BP was (Chapman, Simon, LeCure in particular) lately, and needed a day or two off, when asked about Redman (said they needed a "long man").

    I would hope they'd give H-Rod a chance soon, no reason not to add him at this point.
