Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
He doesn't locate it so well sometimes, but his fastball is anything but straight. Learning to pitch within yourself sometimes takes time. Throwing harder for some doesn't mean better or more effective. Location, location, location. Dialing it up for guys who don't throw hard is dependent on location. Up under the hands or up out of the strike zone is usually effective. The change of speed in a great location is sometimes enough to get it by a hitter who isn't expecting it.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
