Number threes are not tees.
If Leake suddenly stops giving up so many home runs, then he'll be on to something.
Agreed. Now how he goes about allowing fewer homers is another question, which Coach Price is much more qualified to answer then I am.
All things being equal, GABP is about as bad a fit for Leake as there could be.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
