Mike Leake's age means he's not as good as those who are as good as he is, thus those who are as good as he is, do not know they are as good as they are. So the perception is that his potential is therefore limited by his draft position, which means he will be as good as the least best person who is the best.
If not, he'll be as good as the worst of the best.
Or the best of the worst who are the best...
