Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
I don't remember the poster but a proponent of Leake suggested he can improve to be a TOR arm (like a #2 guy I think would be a fair interpretation).
Is the argument that he can improve his command and possibly turn one of his pitches into something that misses bats and these changes are enough to transform him from the below average starter he has been into a #2ish type guy?
I'm having real trouble seeing the room between his head and ceiling concerning his command and stuff to allow that.....
It's easy to dream on a guy. "Da Dream" should be Homer's nickname. But Leake has kind of maxed out on the two biggests things that chage a pitcher-command/stuff and pitchability.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
