I agree with this.....Leighton is a likeable guy, and came pretty damn close to winning a cup.Sure he had his moments, so did a bunch of other players on the team.I do not blame the whole cup deal on Mike Leighton, just as i never thought Bill Buckner was the reason the Red Sox lost the world series years ago....Everyone loves a scape goat.I would love to see Mike play well when or wherever he plays.
