Re: Random thought on Chapman
What I'd like to see them do is use Leake more as a proper swing man, almost piggy-backing with Chapman to help him keep his innings/pitches down. Imagine you face Chapman the first two times through the order and then you face Leake the next time before getting handed off to Marshall, et. al.
That would keep everybody on a normal rotation (I don't want to take starts away from Cueto and Latos), ease Chapman in and take advantage of Leake's ability to hit in a long relief role.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
