Though the news of Reds' pitcher Mike Leake being arrested for stealing $60 worth of T-shirts from Macy's on Monday is certainly no laughing matter, there are plenty of jokes surfacing around message boards, blogs, and social media. Here's a some sample of what people are saying:
--Leake has a quick first step, but he can't outrun the video cameras.
--Leake tried to get a front door shirtball past Macy's, but they saw it coming.
--His obvious tells on his pick up move have been caught on film now.
--I read about his five finger discount as well.
--Leake is slightly better at pitching than he is at stealing, with a 2-0 record and a 5.50 ERA.
--Leave him alone. He's a great guy - he'd give you the shirt right off his rack.
--He was nearly out, but then they missed the tag.
--Goes in the stat sheet as "Caught Stealing"
--Mike leake was caught "Red(s)" handed!
--At Sears you can take a leak, at Macy's, the Leake may take you!
--I just think it's ironic, because the last time I was at Macy's, I had to take a Leake.
