    1-2-3 inning for Homer

That's an amazing statement."

I don't want to act like all of those homers are a product of bad luck, but a 17% HR/FB rate is not something that would be sustained for a long period of time. I don't think it's ever been done for longer than a season, in fact.
    Leake also has by far the highest line drive rate against him of any Reds pitcher, except Redmond. 26.1 percent. Nobody else is close.

    If you want the last word, you can have it. I'm done discussing Leake.

    And again, SIERA takes that into account (the line drive rate).

    Well that was one of the more odd routine groundouts you'll see.



    Heisey triples!

    Heisey playing really well right now. Intentional walk to Votto.

    Rain on its way, perhaps Reds can find a way to score some runs.

    Ludwick will try.

    Heisey's OPS now up to .770.

    Intentional walk to Votto, unintentional walk to Ludwick. Bases juiced for Boss.

    Votto's been on base in two games more than some of the bench guys all year.

    I'm with Welsh. I'm 22 and Doug Brocail being the Astros pitching coach makes ME feel old.

    Yeesh. Ugly double play as Ludwick slipped and they first get the out at home then tag Ludwick out. Inning suddenly over.
