Re: Trading a starting pitcher
If you're worried about overworking Chapman, start Cingrani, Corcino, Redmond, or another AAAA lifer. Put the other guys on strict five day rotation and skip Chapman whenever it's needed.
You don't need Leake as an emergency starter when he could be packaged for a better OF option than Chris Heisey or Drew Stubbs.
I'd think Boston could be open to a blockbuster deal of Leake, Arredondo, Massett (to balance out the salaries), and the Reds' choice of Gregorius or Cozart for Jacoby Ellsbury and Bryce Brentz.
