2015 ex-Reds, 1990 Score style: Mike Leake (San Francisco Giants)


Emotionally, this was one of the most difficult cards to make because I have been a Mike Leake fan and supporter since his rookie campaign in 2010. I definitely did not want to see Leake traded, but understood the business side of it. He’s a free agent, and he’ll likely make some dough this off season as a solid #2 starter. In his rookie year, Leake won five decisions before receiving a loss, and he was able to keep his ERA under 4.00 until the last game of the season when he was roughed up by the Giants.

While I would love to see Leake return to the Reds as a free agent, I don’t believe the team will be active in the free agent market at all. It seems that they are content to field a losing team in 2016.
