I'm with you Dave. If we do have to ship Leake out to improve the club, I at least hope he isn't packaged with Cingrani or Corcino as well. I think even if Chapman pans out exactly as we might hope, the chances of the Reds making it through 162 games with only 5 starters again are pretty slim.
Of course, as always, it all depends on the return. I could get down on some Wil Myers...
Unfortunately, I'm not sure the Reds have overly enticing chips they're willing to part with in a trade that are not pitchers.
