Sure, that's what any fanbase would have.  And, hopefully that's all it is.  But on the outside looking in, if you take a look at the track record of Baker, it is reasonable to question that there could be more than just fatigue.  You can see that, right?


Oh I agree 100%, Dusty has that reputation and from the outside yes it could look like Dusty ruined another pitcher. Leake has pitched in 24 games and has 138 innings which averages out to a little over 6 innings per outing. Plus he has yet to throw a complete  game this year and his longest outing was 8.1 innings. I really don't see a case to make that Dusty has ruined Leake.

Here are Leakes stats. If you look you will see he was dominant early on but has struggled badly since July 4th.
