It would suggest he's been a back end starter. Again, he was drafted as a guy with major league quality command of four pitches who was well ahead of the curve from a pitchability standpoint.
I'm not sure there is alot of room to squeeze juice out of those apples-which again is the point concerning arguments that Leake has a ton of room to grow.
"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
