I did a look up him.. He's still young, but about a 750 OPS 3b.. doesn't seem that special, even though he was the best position player in the Cards system.
I think we can tweak the offense without giving up Leake. It's kind of neat the Reds have so much deep pitching though.. If the team had a Leake type pitcher in 2002, he'd be viewed as a savior and be totally untouchable..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
