    Truly, me either? Besides the park is always sold out. They must not remember Scott Rolen winning them a bunch of game including the ROY and being a class act.

    Hopefully he'll keep it up on the road, which is his nemesis.

    Phils announcers say Leake is a pitcher you can come back on. Also saying Chapman probably not available tonight, which makes sense.

    What is up with the Reds' baserunning the last few weeks? It has been perplexing.

    Anyone with a coaching background who can see what the difference is between the 2011 Leake and 2012 Leake is?

    True, but Phillips has run the bases very well tonight, scoring on outs.

    Aggressive good baserunning by Brandon.

    Pierre singles.

    Leake now facing Utley and Howard. I'm not planning to watch.

    Hopefully Dusty has a quick hook with Leake.

That's an amazing statement."

    5-4 as Utley doubles in a run. It feels like it is going to take about 10 runs to win this game.

    Get Leake out.

    Using Leake against these excellent lefty hitters is just ridiculous tonight.

    Enough, get him out of there. Use Arredondo, he's tough on lefties.

    Leake now facing Howard, just walk him.

    They are, good.

    Awful pitching by Leake tonight, just terrible.

    He's been less BABIP lucky. All of his peripherals are about the same but his BABIP this year is .299 compared to .269 last year. He's at his ceiling right now. Never will be anything more than a BOR starter.

    Juan Pierre would still look nice in a Reds uni.

    Marty's right. Leake has to pitch better than this....the Reds have scored runs against Halladay, and he gives up the lead again.
