OK how about this season

47th in ERA
49th in WHIP
48th in OPS against

Yes Leake is that bad, almost everybody has someone better than him as their 5th starter already
158 different pitchers started in the NL last year. The fact that Leake had the innings to qualify for rate stats is a testament to him. The Mets have one guy in their 2013 rotation who qualified last year, you don't think they'd take Leake?
The Padres opening day starter was EDINSON VOLQUEZ!
