    LeCure for sure. He's not Lincecum, but he had a great year and I think would've outperformed Leake.

    Lecure did have a great season but not to overlook is that he only went 1 2/3 in game 1 and did have to escape with the bases loaded in his full inning. The concern I had coming into this, and I am a huge Leake fan and apologist, is that Leake does not seem to pitch well on extra rest. For evidence of this I would point to his last starts of his rookie season after they skipped him at times to give him more rest and spare him innings. They never would have done it but I would have preferred Cingrani today.

    The thing is, LeCure didn't have much time to warm up in game 1. Today, when he had proper warm up time, he was fine. And it's doubtful he was tired. I'm sure LeCure could've gone 5 before turning it over to the bullpen.
