Partly cloudy. Winds blowing out to left field at 5-15 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 85.
See how many Houston Astros you can name. You have 30 seconds. I think Craig Biggio retired. I'm pretty sure. No, I'm not going to look it up. I have to find Mike Leake's SIERA.
Mike Leake is not going to start a playoff game, unless something weird happens. But he's better than his ERA shows, if you buy into his peripherals, his track record and his potential. He'll also be on the playoff roster, which could always have him pitching (or hitting) in a very important moment, especially in an extra-inning affair.
He still has a chance to tune-up and be a fail safe for the top guys in the rotation.
