    Remember just a month ago when Homer Bailey looked like the 2nd best pitcher here?

    Now, Leake looks like an outstanding #3 and Latos a solid #2.

    Here's all Leake has done over his last 11 starts:

    He has been outstanding since the middle of May, compiling a 3-1 record, 2.59 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over his last 11 starts.

    Can anyone remember a better pitching staff? Not in my 43 years of watching them (been watching them closely since I was 10, so I'm thinking since 1969.)

    This is a great staff.....could you imagine this staff with the Griffey/Dunn offense when GABP first opened?

    Pitchers pitch with confidence with great defense behind them and at the plate (Hanigan/Mesoraco). It's very underrated.

    I'd just take a Josh Hamilton offense.

    Post-season pitching looks good at this point

    Cueto

    Latos

    Then a choice of Leake, Bailey, and Arroyo with the other two going into the pen.

    40+ for me, too. Best I can recall from 1-5.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Dunn also only hit HR when the game was out of hand. Griffey didn't always bust it to first.

    My guess it would be Cueto/Leake/Latos/Arroyo(if they need 4) right now with Bailey down in the pen(where he belongs).

    As I said on the other thread, Leake will have likely reached his limit on innings for the season and Bailey will be close. Bailey's never pitched over 132 innings i the bigs and that was last year. Leake went 167 last year and at 6 innings per start will be over 200 this year.

    With each passing day your Bailey hate gets dumber and dumber.

    Cueto never over 185.....6 inn per start he'll be about 215.
