Partly cloudy,rain. Winds blowing out to center field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 70.
I'm not going to sugarcoat it. Maybe you read other blogs that do. This is not such a great match-up. The Mike Leake we know from Seasons One and Two is never more than a start away from becoming dependable again, but there hasn't been much to like about his recent episodes. Other than: his regressed stats, which were revealed in a really hacky series of therapist scenes, suggest he's not nearly this bad.
Meanwhile, Johan Santana is back from doing off-Broadway and, rather than losing steps, has learned a few.
Go Reds! Think positive, play the game, then win the game.
