If he does what I think he'll do, Broxton-Marshall-Madson would be a very, very good bullpen and they could move Chapman to the rotation, trading Leake or Bailey for a bat.
I think you're right - 13/9 is not gonna happen, but if he's anywhere near 8-10 he can still be very effective. A Broxton-Marshall-Madson back of the bullpen could be tremendous; however, there's a lot of "if" in that daydream.
