    Sam Lecure Under the Radar POY

    Stats:

    51.66 IP, 2.96 ERA, 9.06 K/9, 3.48 BB/9, .52 HR/9. 1.24 WHIP.

    Sam may be the answer in game 4. Limit Bailey to one time through the order and let Lecure take 'em on the second time through (might mix Cingrani in there to change the look with a lefty).

    Something like Bailey in the 1st and 2nd, Cingrani in the 3rd and maybe 4th with Lecure getting innings 5, 6 and 7 leaving the 8th and 9th to Marshall, Broxton and Chapman.

    I was a Sam doubter, but he's had a really good season and doesn't get much love. This thread is to give him his kudos.

    This is going to sound a little bit crazy, but you need to start Bailey 1st or 2nd if you are on the road. He simply isn't the same at home and pitching him on the road gives you a good chance to win, where as pitching him at home lessens your chance quite a bit.

    It would be a refreshing stroke of genius. I hope the media gets behind the idea so the top brass know that the public is well aware of that option.

    I'm a big fan of LeCure.
    "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."

    I'd start Bailey and have Leake warming up most of the game in the bullpen in case Bailey gets in trouble early. Use 2 starters to get it done if needed.

    I felt the same but looking closer, think I'd have Leake inactive.

    Cueto
    Latos
    Arroyo
    Bailey
    Lecure
    Arredondo
    Cingrani
    Hoover
    Marshall
    Broxton
    Chapman

    If they go to 12, I'd probably take Simon.

    Is Cingrani eligible for the postseason? I thought he came up after September 1st...

    Madsen and Masset on the 60 day DL. They can replace those spots with any pitcher in the organization by September 1.

    Another dominant outing today. Have to think Lecure will be pitching some meaningful innings in October if he keeps up this pace.

    I knew he was much better on the road, but to be honest I didn't realize his splits were quite as drastic as they were. With a 2.75 road ERA, I think I like this idea, Doug. On the other hand, Latos has pitched well in San Francisco in his career, so I don't know if I'd want to bump him either.

    Back to Lecure.

    Followed him closely in the minors. A bit fragile in terms of health. Misses time.

    But has the ability to get very hot. Had some great stretches when he got to the upper minor leagues.

    Right now, he seems to be a very hot relief pitcher.
