Lefty the reds have never seen?

Will be shocked if the Reds plate 3 runs.

Hopefully the reds throw a toaster in my bathtub.

It's a big game....maybe the lefty will have some jitters and the Reds can get to him early.

This is the 'A' line-up...taking game 1 would be sweet (and of course, games two and three as well)!

Relax :) , the Reds saw him June 8. The Reds scored 4 runs in 5.1 IP against him.

This should be an easy win for the Reds, provided Leake gives us a decent night (which I think he will).

We caught a nice break getting Lyons.

1 thru 9, that's the best hitting lineup this Reds team has to offer. Hopefully they send a message in game one.

Agree. Baseball intensity and football intensity are completely different animals but they should serve the same purpose of promoting focus.

Big start for Leake here. He can't let this one get out of hand early.

tomnuetten
08-26-2013, 08:20 PM
what an at bat for votto...

all pitches perfect thrown, barely touching the plate ....

hope that´s not what we´ll see all day

ProfessorTofty
08-26-2013, 08:21 PM
First look at Leake here tonight. If the 1st inning was any indication, we're going to need another very solid performance from our pitching again. Here we go...

_Sir_Charles_
08-26-2013, 08:22 PM
This is worth repeating.

Todd Frazier is 1 for 39 against the Cards.

So, you're saying he's due?

Reds may want to rethink the way they pitch John Jay.

C'mon Leake one more out. Sorry, I was at the last Reds-Cards series when they seemingly scored at will.

Don't care what inning it is.

Jay Bruce saves a lot of runs.

HUGE job, potentially, having that runner hold at 3B. Be smart here, Mike, PLEASE.

_Sir_Charles_

2 out double. It begins.

Come on guys. Let's not start with the sky is falling stuff when there's no score even.

If leake doesn't get the calls on the corners he's gonna have a hard time getting outs

Meso with one up the center there, it's 1st and 2nd, one out.

_Sir_Charles_
08-26-2013, 08:39 PM
Well, that was a gift strike call. Devin says screw that...I'll take the single instead!

Or an error. Scalded though.

ProfessorTofty
08-26-2013, 08:40 PM
Make that 1st and 3rd actually.

ProfessorTofty
08-26-2013, 08:40 PM
Yes!!!! That one will score a run... two runs! It's a triple! 2-0 Reds!

I like our chances to plate Cozart here. Leake at the dish.

Larkin Fan
08-26-2013, 08:42 PM
Cozart has really been swinging the lumber lately. Nicely done.

_Sir_Charles_
08-26-2013, 08:43 PM
.200 ba for Leake. He's a much better hitter than that. He's had some tough luck this year at the dish.

BluegrassRedleg
08-26-2013, 08:44 PM
Leake really battles at the plate. You can tell he expects himself to get a knock here.

_Sir_Charles_
08-26-2013, 08:44 PM
BB for Leake. Nice AB Mike.

ProfessorTofty
08-26-2013, 08:44 PM

High strike no strike for Leake.

ProfessorTofty
08-26-2013, 09:12 PM
That's an interesting stat there-- Leake has never lost a game in which he was given at least 4 runs to work with. Let's hope the streak continues.

RedlegJake
08-26-2013, 09:12 PM
Seeing Maloney in that first base coach uniform in Red and I automatically think Jim. Can't help it. Leake walks Jay.

The Operator
08-26-2013, 09:12 PM
Mr. Leake, you cannot afford to walk guys. Especially to bring up the middle of a potent offenses order.

The Operator
08-26-2013, 09:13 PM

Yogi was never fat or wide, just very short. Now Mez. Has to be upset with you, Yogi was/is one of the strangest looking players ever. But he was one hell of a player. And now its 4 to 3!

Yogi was squat - I saw him in play in person more years ago than I care to admit, not fat but as you say but short and barrel built, strong. He also had the same dark, dark eyes. Mes is tall and slender in comparison and his arms don't hang past his hips (another Berra feature) but when I see his face in profile I think of Yogi. I wish I thought of Yogi when I watch him hit...

In terms of Leake's performance today, the walk was hard to swallow and he laid one in there for Holiday. The first guy on nubbed a hit thru against the shift after Leake got squeezed.

Not making excuses, but I don't think Leake is laying an egg so far...just unfortunate timing. That said, I've been expecting him to regress.
