Notes:

-How ironic is it that Mike Leake is pitching on a free short Friday? The jokes write themselves.

-Burnett has yet to got six innings this year. The strikeouts are nice but that needs to change in terms of efficiency.

-Joey Votto is really good at baseball. Best hitter in the NL.

-Reds were last a year ago in terms of lead off OBP. Choo instantly makes then better with an 11% walk rate an a .511 OBP.
