I'm guessing most of us wouldn't mind either Leake or Homer starting a playoff game if we knew in advance that they would have a good night.. both are capable, just need to reduce the number of stinkers.
This. Consistency has been the bane of both guys. When they're on, they both have the ability to control a game and dominate another team (in different ways). Both guys have the ability to be 15 game winners in the next couple of seasons.
I'd keep both of them, personally. I'd also keep Chapman as the closer and plan to move either Corinco or Cingrani (which ever develops faster) into the starting rotation in 2014 once Arroyo's contract is done.
