Cueto had a better year than Leake in 2011. He is the only Reds' starting pitcher that could say that.
Leake had a better 2011 season than Bailey.
Leake: 3.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP in 167.2 IP.
Bailey: 3.93 ERA, 1.31 WHIP in just 112 IP.
So, who are these mystery three pitchers that pitched better than Leake last year? Cueto and who else? Who are the other two?
For the record, I think Bailey is better than Leake right now, but we're talking about just the 2011 season.
