Really. These are human beings playing, not figures on a computer screen or stats on the back of a bubblegum card (dating myself?). They're prone to the same frailties that you and I are, they're going to make mistakes and have bad days and all that. It happens. Leake will return and do better sometime in the near future.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
