I would agree with this. Leake does have 4.0 fWAR at this point in his career, while Wood had only 3.3 fWAR when he was dealt. Still Leake has started three years in the bigs and Wood was only two years in when he was dealt. If Leake is being undervalued, I agree the Reds should not deal him. If he and a combination of minor leaguers is enough for a big bat in left field, I am a happy Reds' fan.
