"He looked like a surfer kid from SoCal," manager Dusty Baker says. "He didn't say much, but you could tell he was cool."
hahaha I love this quote so much. Dibs!

Also, it's interesting he's rooming with Lincoln. 10 year age difference, but they must get along pretty well.

Obviously Lincoln is having no negative effect on Leake.

Lincoln probably has a good effect on Leake. Lincoln has seen a lot of ball that Leake only hopes to see.

"I hope I never become a guy that plays the game for the money," Leake says. "I play the game because I love it. I'd love to be one of those guys that stays on the same team for 15 years. I'd love to win here."

That made me very happy right there.
