Re: Leake: Always giving up early runs

Every time Leake makes a start, I'll be thinking: "If only this were Chapman".
Welcome to 2013.
Quoted for truth. Every time Leake takes the mound his performance will be measured against what people think Chapman would have given them. Leake is in a no-win situation. If Leake pitches well, that's nothing that Chapman wouldn't have done. If Leake gets roughed up, Chapman would have done better.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
