Mike Leake vs. Luke French

Sunny. Game time temperature around 70.


I'm excited to follow Mike Leake and Travis Wood's outings today. Now that we know that they are still in serious consideration for the 5th starter spot, I'm rooting for both of them to kick some butt. Previously I was ambivalent to their performance because I figured they'd end up in the minors either way. I love that they basically have forced the Reds to seriously consider them. We should also see Kip Wells today. I'm less excited about that.

This will be the first time that the Reds get to face former Red Ken Griffey Jr. I wish we could watch the game today. I'd love to see the montage of him shaking hands in CF with all of his former teammates. I don't miss Griffey the player much, but I do miss Griffey the aura.

Lineups are after the jump. WLW's got the audio or you can follow Gameday.
