Re: Leake: Always giving up early runs
Leake gave up four runs in a game where the Reds scored six yet somehow the loss is all his fault. Leake didn't pitch well today, but he wasn't a disaster either. He gave the Reds six innings and didn't let the score get out of reach. If he had given up one less run, it would have been an official quality start.
How about we hang the loss where it really belongs, on the reliever who has 100% of the Reds losses on his record? Despite the great spring, Hoover has shat the bed thus far in the regular season.
