Re: Chapman to bullpen not official.
Leake is a good #5 and probably an average to slightly below average #4. We have gotten spoiled enough not to want to accept that, which is not a bad thing.
The problem with Leake is that I don't think he has enough upside to ever be more than that. Certainly he has some value, but I like my back-of-the-rotation guys to be up-and-comers with the eventual upside to become a front or at least middle of the rotation guy (kind of like what Homer Bailey has been the past couple years). That is why I would prefer an Aroldis Chapman or a Rick Porcello as our #5 starter to a Mike Leake.
I think Leake could be very attractive to San Diego, where he actually could look more like a #3 starter (and play in front of his hometown crowd).
