Leake, and for the record, I would have answered the same a few weeks ago.
Bailey has just not won me over. Even when he was pitching well, I felt it was somewhat smoke & mirrors. He too often gets the ball up in the zone for my liking. His stuff is a little better than Leake's when it's on, but I like Leake because of the age, the contract, the control and being able to induce more grounders.
I don't dislike Bailey, but I'd rather have Leake going forward.
