    I like Latos going forward than Leake if they both are healthy, but the difference between the two isn't as big as I thought it was.

    But comparisons aside, why is it problematic for a pitcher to end a season poorly, but not problematic for a pitcher to start the season poorly?

    When Latos can't throw his breaking ball for a strike he has to rely on (a very good) fastball that can be hit around when the opponent knows it's all he's got. When Leake can't throw his breaking ball for a strike, it's a sign of the apocalypse. When he works high in the zone he is in trouble.

    It's "sexier"... or you can call it "pitching porn".
