Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
Leake probably is a good fifth starter and some are happy with that I guess but he is still way to hittable for my tastes. I know that even most first round draft picks don't pan out at all and in terms of the draft Leake is far from a total bust but I just don't like him in the rotation. I mean this is a guy the Reds threw in an extremely important playoff game last season and he got absolutely shelled. Yes, he's a fine fifth starter on most teams but I feel like we could have done better than decent for that fifth spot.
