There they call a gem, "Slowly remove it from your finger, and no funny business!" Against the Pirates yesterday -- 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 12 Ks. Pretty much across the board for Cueto's career, I haven't been a fan. His xFIP has always...

If people haven't figured it out yet, it's not good to judge Leake no matter where he is on the baseball field. Leake's performances on the pitching mound and in the batter's box Tuesday were instrumental...
