Not saying either situation is a certainty, but I'm just pointing out that Leake is not a certainty for a pen role either.
That may very well be. Dusty & WJ haven't shown their cards concerning the master plan of how to use Chapman & Leake.
Pete Campbell: A man like you I'd follow into combat blindfolded, and I wouldn't be the first. Am I right, buddy?
