Re: Leake: Always giving up early runs
I don't -- and won't -- compare Leake to other fifth starters. That may be a reasonable standard for a league average team, but it is not a high enough standard for a team hoping to be a World Series contender.
You don't achieve excellence in life by lowering standards or expectations. You rise to meet and exceed them. Clearly, Leake is not yet capable of excelling at the major league level.
