Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
Instead he broke straight through to the majors and we've seen more of his learning curve as a result. Remember, almost no one can make the jump straight to the majors from the college ranks. It takes a lot of talent to do it and survive.
Agreed. Plus he's done it pitching in one of most pitcher-unfriendly parks in the majors. A park that could undo lesser pitchers (or much taller ones -- looking at you, Harang).
