Who was it yesterday who said we were going to rough up Dickey tonight? Somebody deserves some major props.
Dickey's ERA up to 2.89, as the Reds try and give Cueto and Chapman help in the CYA chase.
One on, one out, Wright up against Leake in the seventh.
Wright Ks. Leake has had some bad luck lately, maybe tonight things going his way.
"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."
Hershiser deserved the Cy Young award in 1988, not Danny Jackson.
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
Let's go the 8th!
I don't know if Leake will pitch any more tonight, but he threw one of his best games of the year. Great to see the Reds with a lead against RA Dickey.
