    Big out as Schafer strikes out swinging after failing to get a bunt down. 5 Ks for Leake

    Except that when he moves to lead off, he stops hitting.

    Solution: Cross out the number one on the lineup card. Substitute 2A and 2B.
    Then hit Stubbs and Cozart in any order Dusty wants.
    Or clone Votto and let him hit behind multiple players.

    So of course he is leading off again.
    The #2 hitter has been hitting, for the most of the season, in front of the best hitter in baseball. Gotta figure that counts for something.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    You know it's a rough night when you see Bill Bray throw a baseball on camera.

    Is it just gameday, or is Leake getting squeezed here?

    Good job by Leake as Martinez grounds out back to Leake. 2-1 Astros after 7.

    Tie this thing up and turn it into a battle of the pens.

    "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."
