    Yeah, still a ton of time. If we have learned anything from the past month or so, it's that this team won't go away.

    Really. These are human beings playing, not figures on a computer screen or stats on the back of a bubblegum card (dating myself?). They're prone to the same frailties that you and I are, they're going to make mistakes and have bad days and all that. It happens. Leake will return and do better sometime in the near future.
    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.

    Chris welsh said this park's in Volquez' head. I hope it continues.

    I like our odds against Volquez as well as the Padres relievers who, while pretty good, are the friendly outside of Petco.
    "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."

    Well said. The constant, constant negativity while a ten game winning streak is in progress makes for a miserable game thread.

    Great point. Leake essentially becomes your Bronson after Arroyo's is done as a Red. ERA's gonna be in the 4s, gonna pitch a lot of innings, will have a lot of really good starts and a lot of really bad starts and a lot in between..

    I feel sorry for Simon. Only his third AB.
