I could see this one argued either way and I do like the Leiter addition to the starting lineup. However, I personally wouldn't take it as Brown's upside when healthy outweighs the new starting tandem. Its a tough call and I know I'll probably take heat as Vazquez is no slouch and Leiter makes it that much better. I just remember too easily who the third pitcher taken was two years ago in nearly every draft. If he's healthy (yes, big if) he's a top 5 pitcher. Vazquez, though I like him quite a bit tends to be a little like Freddy Garcia in that your never quite sure what to expect (though its been month to month for Vazquez, inning to inning or hitter to hitter for Garcia). I go out on a limb and suggest, don't do it.

I know Brownie has been hurt the last two years...but so has Pedro and no one backs off him. RJ has sever back problems years ago...and has not be on the DL since. Brown is a risk...but he is the BOOM guy. I am torn on this one. Help a brutha out!!!
