    Dear Mike Leake,

    You usually don't want to throw the ball over the middle of the plate to every hitter.

    Sincerely,

    Screwball

    They are stealing the Reds signs. Just watched three Phils in a row on 2nd base dip their heads back toward 2nd signaling the batter that a breaking ball is coming.

    He had good movement on his fastball. He just made a ton of mistakes on the breaking pitch that landed in the wheelhouse to decent hitters. Frustrating!

    This game is totally on Leake. What's Dusty to do, have a guy warming up to start the fifth inning?
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    And he should have been pulled after the Utley double.

    Did you notice that? They were all over his breaking pitch...all over it.

    Leake pitched like crap, no doubt, but you don't have to leave him to get his brains beaten out and run up a deficit. I think there's blame to go all around.

    Watch the guy on 2nd. When he dips his head back toward 2nd, breaking ball.

    Just a horrendous outing by Leake and a ridiculous decision to leave him in so long.
