    Don't forget, the only good leak is a Mike Leake!

    I have confidence in Leake, especially in the "less homer freindly October GABP." Go get em Mike!

    Go Reds!

    I say go Leake today and save Latos if game 5 is needed. I saw Mo Egger says in his blog this morning he'd have a short leash with Leake and if needed go to Latos again out of the bullpen, I disagree. I think give Leake a shot- have a quick hook and go to our bullpen immediately if we fall behind by 2-3 early. Lecure, Simon, etc to try to get to the 7-8th.

    You have to have Latos ready for game 5 IMO just in case. That way if we dont need game 5, you have him for game 1 of LCS assuming Cueto is not available.

    I don't really like this train of thought. I say go Latos in game 4 because of Zito pitching. We are more apt to score some runs off of him than we are Cain in game 5. So...since we should get some more scoring oppurtunities today, throw someone that will give us a better chance to win today. Then you can come back with Arroyo and Bailey in the next round. Remember that if we win today we will get a few days off so that will help. I say get this over today and 1 we save Cueto for next round if he can get healthy, if not we can still use Leake. Just my opinion, to each his own!!! GO REDS!!!!

    Can anyone CONFIRM that for sure. It's probably true. But nobody knows THAT for sure. The way the Reds handle this stituation is SOPHMORTIC-sp Say No comment on the game 4 starter and do not have misinformation all over the place on Johnny C. Very bad P.R.

    no official confirmation. ESPN is reporting it, citing sources. You also had Bailey saying it last night.

    This doesn't make it so, but the wind is sure blowing in that direction.

    Who are the Reds trying to fool or what are they trying to prove. Make a decision or make it public. It's these kinda of things make me scared that the Reds aren't ready for prime time!

    With Bailey saying it last night and all the smoke, I feel like the decision has been made and it's Leake. The Reds probably are just trying to keep the Giants off balance by not announcing it until the last minute.

    Fact of the matter is Latos gives us the best shot to win today or tomorrow.

    Leake is probably on par with Zito and w/ homefield the Reds are probably the slightest of favorites.

    But if we use Latos and lose we become the underdawg in game 5 in a potential Arroyo vs Cain matchup.

    Starting Leake to day and Latos tommorow makes us favorites in both games. Starting Latos today makes us favorites in one game.

    Per Fay, the Reds have confirmed that Leake will start today. Leake replaces Cueto on the roster.

    If needed, Latos starts tomorrow.

    Leake
    Leake
    Leake

    I would have rather had a bullpen game

    I have no faith in Leake

    Dude has a 5.54 ERA in GABP with a .313 BBA

    He also has a 6.25 ERA in day games

    He had a 5.48 ERA in SEPT
    he had a 5.27 ERA after the All-Star game


    This is going to come down to a game 5


    To say Zito is on par with Leake is crazy
    Zito had 15 wins, 7 on the road with a 4.34 ERA

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 10, 2012

    REDS DIVISION SERIES ROSTER SUBSTITUTION APPROVED

    Major League Baseball announced today that it has approved a roster substitution for the Cincinnati Reds due to an injury sustained by right-handed pitcher Johnny Cueto. Cueto will be replaced on the Division Series roster by right-handed pitcher Mike Leake.
    MLB Postseason rules provide that a Club may request permission from the Commissioner’s Office to replace a player who is unable to play because of an injury. The Commissioner’s Office may approve or disapprove the request based on the specific facts and circumstances. In accordance with the rules, Cueto will be ineligible to return in the National League Championship Series, but would be eligible to return for the World Series if the Reds advance.

    The bigger deal here is not having Cueto for the NLCS.
