Mike Leake shares some insight on went wrong with Reds under Dusty Baker

Reds pitcher Mike Leake went on the air with Lance McCallister of 700 WLW Tuesday night and proceeded to share some insight on went wrong toward the end of Dusty Baker's tenure.

Although Baker led Cincinnati to three postseason appearances in four years, the Reds faltered in the first round each time, and they especially flamed out toward the end of this most recent campaign.

Baker was accused of being too friendly, not fiery enough, and above all, unable to inspire and motivate his players to play as a team.

Leake echoed those sentiments in his interview with McCallister:
Anyone who watched this Reds team compete down the stretch can't be too surprised at Leake's comments. Honestly, it seems as though Leake hit the proverbial nail on the head.
