Arrow Cardinals Have Sprung a Leake

Per Cotillo, Heyman and Rosenthal, he's close to signing with the redbirds.

Damn, I was hoping they'd keep quiet this offseason. Has this been confirmed yet?

Meanwhile the Cubs have John Lackey and Adam Warren. Sigh. Most of the moves Mozeilak makes works out.

hate to see him back in the NL Central. He kills the Pirates.

good thing the pirates scooped up Jon Niese, Ryan Vogelsong, and Kyle Lobstein before STL could get their hands on them :eyeroll:

Chris Cotillo reports it's likely to be in the $75M range for 5 years.

SAF you're amazing. So you're saying you would rather have Leake over Lackey. Sigh. Oh yea I also heard they picked up Heyward and Zobrist.

Mike Leake earns basically the same money as Adam Wainwright. Bizzaro World.

We live in a world where Rick Porcello makes $20M a year. Down is up.

Would you mind telling me why wanting Leake over Lackey is a bad thing?

I hate this world.

I also hate the fact that the Pirates are shopping Melancon who had 51 saves and a 2.23 ERA last year simply because they do not want to pay him 9-10 mil in arbitration, or give him a decent extension.

At this rate they will be a distant 3rd in the NL Central

Rosenthal confirms the signing, pending a physical.

I'm glad he ended up on an NL team. I was worried he'd end up on an AL team and destroy his value on my fantasy team.

Don't be the "my fantasy team" guy. No one likes that guy.

I'm not saying you're better than that, just don't do it.

It was either that or "John Mozeliak Takes a Leake".

Probably would have gotten edited, or a possible suspension.

Leake isn't that good, but I feel like the Cardinals got a good deal considering what guys like Samardzija, Cueto, Zimmermann, Lackey, etc got.

He's a sun devil so he is amazing. He also adds a bat at the bottom of the order whenever he plays. Very above average hitter for a pitcher.
