Really worried about Braves seeing Leake twice within a week. He better have lots of movement tonight or get on your helmets in the cheap seats.

Reds need to do more damage against lefties this season. They came back nicely against Sabathia yesterday, would like to see them tee off against Minor tonight.

Hope Cozart is up to the leadoff position, he's really cooled down. He batted at bottom of the order when Heisey led off; tonight Zack is back at leadoff, hope it works out.

Minor struggling to find the zone early. We really need to work him and get good pitches to hit - it seems like he'll lay one over the plate at least once per AB.

Joey's OPS against lefties this year is below .800. Yankee announcers this weekend saw that and didn't quite appreciate that Joey destroys lefties usually.

Minor got him there, but some lefty soon will pay. Joey ain't afraid of no lefties.

Virginia Beach Reds

I believe Ryan Ludwick swings at more pitches out of the zone than any other player on the current roster. I realize he was swinging at anything close with 2 strikes, but just an overall observation.

Phillips really isn't generating much power this year. Next time, I'd like to see the Reds try their truly best righty hitter in the cleanup spot. That's right, Mike Leake.

Patrick Bateman

Not sure where this command suddenly came from (hasn't had it all year long). Seemed like in his last start that he had his best command of the year in his last few innings (despite giving up some runs). Whatever adjustment he made sure looks good, more like the pitcher we expected to see this year.

Dusty, I know all about the old timers who pitched complete games. And I know you want to build Leake's confidence. And of course he should stay in for now.

But if he gets into trouble go to the pen. Don't have Leake leave this game with his head down after giving up a bunch of runs.

He's allowed 2 hits. 1 run. Has a 3 run lead and the pen is pretty tired. Only at 85 pitches. I'm not getting anybody up anytime soon.

Ok, but Leake can fall off a cliff when he is spent. Pitch count isn't the whole answer, Mike hasn't been near the 8th inning in recent memory.

Pitiful night for Ludwick.

At this point, you really don't need to type "pitiful". Simply another night for Ludwick. If he does ANYTHING offensively, it's news worthy. It's long past time for him to be riding the pine. Every squirrel finds a nut now and again. One decent night doesn't give him a weeks' free pass.
