Mike Leake

After his trip to Arizona to watch the Arizona Fall League, Joe Sheehan, of Baseball Prospectus, had this to say about the Reds' first round pick from last June: "Mike Leake looked very polished up close [and] could come quickly."

That's good news because of a lot of people didn't like the pick because of lack of size and upside. Funny, no one is giving the Reds "credit" for shying away from lack of size in a starting pitcher in 2006 when the Reds took Drew Stubbs two spots ahead of Tim Lincecum.
