    I would think so. I certainly hope this is all a big mistake, but how do you just walk out of a department store forgetting to pay for your merchandise. Leake really seems to have a better head on him than that.

    Well if the latest story is correct this was no honest mistake. Leake is shown on video removing the security tags. What an IDIOT!!!!! He just made the Reds choice a lot easier when Cueto and Bailey are ready to come back.

    If you heard Scoot Sloan say that I would take it as sarcasm until you hear other wise. They were playing that out pretty hard as Tracy vs Scott.

    I doubt they would even have security tags on $9 shirts. Nothing will surprsie now with this story though.

    I am blown away by this seriously. How could he be so stupid. He must be one of those people that gets a thrill out of doing it or something.

    Leake is accused of stealing six American Rag T-shirts from the story, removing the security tax and leaving the store without paying for them.

    I guess facing Albert Pujols simply isn't exciting enough for him. Like I said earlier, I hope his dad comes to Cincy and kicks his butt. Way to embarrass the family name there Leake.

    Give him community service, therapy and stuff like that, at least it wasn't domestic violence.

    Some people actually have an illness that they steal even though they can afford it, just for the thrill to see if they can get away with it. Wonder if this is the case for him? But it's odd.

    Leake to address the media himself. We will see it on Reds Live at 6:30 pm.

    This is sad. Cincinnati just continues to look bad because of its superstar athletes.
