What do good teams do to pad their record during the regular season? They beat up on the bad team! That is exactly what the Reds have done as late. The Reds swept the Cubs in Chicago. They swept the Brewers at home over the weekend. And now the club is 1/3 of the way to doing that against the Marlins now. The Marlins are bad! Which is exactly why the Reds need to take care of business today and get one step closer to another sweep.
Mike Leake will look to capitalize on the competition tonight and try and duplicate what Homer Bailey did last night. A good start from Leake tonight would help his chances of keeping his starting job and perhaps make Walt’s decision a little more complicated and tough when Johnny Cueto returns to the rotation. I’ll be pulling for Leake tonight. Not because I think he’s the best fit in the rotation but because I want the Reds to go! And if Leake is going tonight, so will the Reds!
