Mike Leake Sacked by the LBS Nut Bag for Stealing T-Shirts

The LBS Nut Bag would like to welcome another member to the club of stupidity, Mike Leake. Leake is a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Reds and currently a starting pitcher for the team. He was booked on misdemeanor theft charges Monday for allegedly stealing six American Rag t-shirts. No joke.

The former 8th overall pick went straight to the majors last year without stopping for a stint in the minors or passing Go. After taking a pull in the community chest, he could be on his way to jail. The value of the shirts he allegedly stole came out to $59.88 and Leake allegedly removed the security tags and left the Macy’s department store without paying for them.

Leake earns $425,000 this season and signed for a $2.3 million bonus in 2009 according to USA Today. In an interview with them a year ago, he said “I hope I never become a guy that plays the game for the money.” After allegedly stealing $59.88 worth of shirts, can’t say the money’s gone to his head.

To see everyone who’s been sacked by the LBS Nut Bag and why, go here.
