Leake is his 3rd season... I get what you're saying though. It really comes down to Reds fans not liking Homer. There's a double standard, just like Dunn and others that fans tend to ride. If Leake had been handled like Homer and touted as a "savior" then he would be getting the same treatment. I wasn't trying to call out what you said, I'm just amazed at the perception and the attitude people have towards certain players.
