Why can't you just bring yourself admit he's having a very good season and deserves appreciation for it? He beat the Dodgers, and yet instead of complimenting for that, you choose to point out he also beat the Cubs and Astros and had a disastrous August (even though the four months before that were terrific).
He's got a worse K/9 than Arroyo. He's got the highest WHIP of the 4 guys with 30 starts, just a smidge higher than Latos, but Latos can actually strike guys out. His season is screaming luck, and I'm glad he's getting lucky. But luck doesn't last forever.
The Reds are having a good season. Leake is having a very lucky season.
