Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
As starters go Leake is a little better than average at inducing ground balls. He is one of the worst in the majors at inducing HRs.
Number threes are not tees.
If Leake suddenly stops giving up so many home runs, then he'll be on to something.
"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
