    Marshall out, LeCure in.

That's an amazing statement."

    It's like he's the 6th starter in a five man rotation!

    Use of Lecure here indicates no Chapman.

    Broxton would normally come in but is being saved for the ninth.

    Sam is coming off injury, has been a little shaky.

    Not sure Lecure and Brox is going to do it, but we can hope.

    I'm thinking the same thing but I'd rather let this game go than use Chapman. Just not worth it to me. These guys need to be able to get 5 outs between the two of them.

    Mayberry single up the middle. 1st and 2nd, 1 out.

    I understand both sides, but my feeling is that if the Reds clinch the division as early as they theoretically could, Chapman will have plenty of chances to get rest before the playoffs. I'd like to get the division won as soon as possible so I'd still use him tonight.

    That said, it appears Dusty is going to give him the night off, which I respect nonetheless.

    I agree with you.

    Reds bullpen numbers are great, but once you get past Chapman and Marshall I don't think they are any great shakes.

    Hoover actually could get the Ks they need, but won't be used in this kind of spot. Maybe next year he will.

    What, exactly, is Sam Lecure good at? Does he belong on the playoff roster or do Leake and Bailey take his place in the pen?
