How can you be sold on any of them? Leake and Wood both have less than a year of time in the majors. Leake has to paint the zone becase he doesn't have the stuff to throw it down the middle of the plate. Sometimes he's gonna get the calls and sometimes not. Wood I like. I think he's gonna work things out. I think he's just been getting the ball up in the zone. Bailey, I like his bulldog mentality and he can bring it at 95mph if he needs to. He just needs to trust his stuff and get his changeup going.
