I hear you though -- Leake has been a disappointment after his crazy-good start to his career as a rook in 2010. But let's not give up on him yet.
No, he's never actually been good. He's got no out pitch, he gives up a ton of hits. I cringe everytime he pitches. Put it this way, I'd rather see Sam LeCure start over Mike Leake. at least LeCure can get a K.
