But to be honest, I wasn't high on Leake in 2010
. 1) My feelings are that a MLB player needs to spend some time in the minors regardless of talent. Wasn't happy when the team shut him down because of innings pitched and wanting to protect his arm. 2) I'm selfish. Wanted to go to Dayton to see him pitch. 3) He wasn't as highly touted as Bailey (that's my entry into the Bailey vs Leake argument) with Bailey being a pitcher with stuff that would blow a batter away and Leake as just a ground ball pitcher. Bailey was the heir and Leake was a spare in the team's pitching royalty.
