Reds Only Need Half Team to Beat A's in Game that Doesn't Matter
Back to the game, Leake started and looked hittable. He only gave up the one run but the A's offense is super brutal. I'm sure he was working on a thing or two, so it doesn't matter. He'll be ready for that inevitable long-reliever role at the end of spring training. The offense looked good, especially once Gio Gonzalez left the game and Brett Anderson entered. Nice to see Alonso show a little power, especially off a same handed pitcher. Gomes homer was a shot. Looked like it was heading into the mountains. Speaking of brutal, Gomes' haircut makes him look homeless. In a good way. It's brutally good, like the A's offense. That's all that I can remember for now. It's an exhibition after all, you're not supposed to pay very close attention. Oh, and Jordan Smith looked winded after running about half a sprint. I think that's the kind of shape a big-league reliever is supposed to be in. Just ask Dave Weathers.
I'll tell Joe and Walt that everyone says hello and talk with you again soon.
