Re: Buster Olney says scouts are raving about Mike Leake
Very interesting Rick, it helps explain why Leake seems to always be either boom (several shutout innings) or bust (knocked around and yanked after just a few) with little margin in between.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
