    Leake wasn't a super-two, and I never heard anyone say he is going to become 'the next Greg Maddux'.

    That said will his stint in the minors keep him under team control an extra year? I'm thinking no for some reason.

    Leake just missed super two status and a quick search revealed quite a few Greg Maddux comparisons, I would post links but not sure how to.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Leake was more than half a season away from reaching super-two status, which is pretty significant in the grand scheme of things. Anyone who said he is going to become the next version of one of the best pitchers of all-time is foolish, but I'm pretty sure no one ever said that.

    I have said, and still say,that if used properly (ie keep his arm a little tired, a well known key to sinkerball pitchers being at their most effective) and he keeps his head on striaght he will be a "Greg Maddux lite."

    PS He also may need to leave Cincy to reach his full potential, it takes good stuff AND the swagger of a matador to pitch well there.
