(Sorry, off topic)
Would we DH for LEAKE at American League ball parks? If not, we would have this issue if he was taken out early:
Use of the DH is optional, but must be determined prior to the start of the game. If a team does not begin a game with a DH, the pitcher must bat for the entire game.

* Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *
Watched the 2012 Clincher on FOX.
*Bat Votto SECOND, please?*
He's a pitcher, he had three hits the other night
Prior to this year this was his slash line
This was the NL slash line on average (non pitchers) last year
FWIW here are the best hitting pitchers since the division era started, 300 PA's

This idea has never gone well for me in Out of the Park, which as we all know, is 1:1 with reality.
